Blackberry Ombre Sparkler

  • 1 cup fresh blackberries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 1 bottle champagne

In a small saucepan, combine blackberries, sugar, and water. Bring to a boil on high heat, and then reduce to a simmer and let cook for approximately 15-17 minutes. The blackberries will become soft and bright in color and a pinkish purple syrup will form. Making sure it cooks down enough is essential to keeping the ombre effect. Take off of the heat and drain the blackberries, keeping the syrup in a separate bowl. Set both aside and allow to cool. Once blackberries and simple syrup are cooled, spoon about 4 tablespoons of syrup into the bottom of each champagne flute. Top with champagne and garnish with fresh blackberries and a sprig of rosemary!


The Kitchen is My Playground

Hot Buttered Rum

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 to 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • pinch ground cloves
  • small pinch salt
  • 2 oz dark or dark spiced rum
  • 6 oz boiling water
  • whipped cream

Place butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves in a small bowl. Mash together with the back of a spoon or a fork until well combined. Use immediately to prepare mugs of Hot Buttered Rum, or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Place two (or three, if you’d like) heaping tablespoons of batter in a mug and add dark rum. Then top off the mug with boiling water, and stir until the butter batter melts and is fully dissolved. Add a dollop of whipped cream and cinnamon if you so desire!
