A simple blackberry and thyme champagne cocktail, a simply delightful way to start any evening!
Recipe for Blackberry & Thyme Fizz by Anisa Sabet for The Macadames.
Could a cocktail be any more pretty?
I made this recently (before I was expecting of course) for a catch up with my girlfriends + they went down a treat. They certainly taste as good as they look!
The blackberry syrup can be made ahead of time and then just whipped together with some sparkling when friends come over. You could switch the blackberries with any berry you like and it would work perfectly. If you can get your hands on them, vintage champagne boats are a lovely way to serve this cocktail.
I hope you enjoy this recipe and i’d love to know what you think.

Recipe adapted from here.
1. In a small saucepan, make your blackberry syrup by combining the blackberries, water, and sugar. Bring to the boil + reduce heat and cook for approx 8 minutes until the blackberries have softened and the mixture is a bright red. Remove, strain and allow to cool.
2. Rim your champagne boats; using a bit of butter between your fingers, gently rim each glass. Then dip into a bowl quarter filled with raw sugar.
3. Fill each boat with champagne, then gently drizzle about a shot of blackberry syrup. Garnish with a few sprigs of thyme and some fresh blackberries.
Storage: blackberry syrup will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.
