A summery spin on the classic mimosa that makes perfect use of the season's fresh produce with juicy blackberries and a touch of mint.

  • Yield: 1 cocktail 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 1/4 ounces fresh blackberry juice*
  • 5 spearmint leaves
  • coarse sugar (I used Demerara), for muddling
  • 1/4 ounce simple syrup**
  • dry champagne, well-chilled
  • fresh blackberries, for garnish (optional)
  • spearmint sprig, for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  1. Add juice, mint, and coarse sugar to a cocktail shaker and muddle to release mint oils. Add simple syrup and shake well.
  2. Strain mixture into a champagne glass and top off with champagne. Garnish with fresh blackberries and/or mint sprig and serve.

Notes

*To make blackberry juice, muddle fresh blackberries and strain juices out through a cheesecloth.

***To make simple syrup, stir together 8 ounces (1 cup) water with 7 ounces (1 cup) granulated sugar in a saucepan set over medium heat. Heat, stirring occasionally, just until the sugar has dissolved into the water. Store in a jar or other airtight container in the refrigerator. This will make enough for several drinks.
