Your new drink of spring and summer! Easy, homemade blackberry ginger simple syrup pairs with lime, vodka and Prosecco creating a tasty and refreshing cocktail that’s perfect for brunch, parties or just any that requires a drink or two.
In a medium saucepan, stir together water, sugar, blackberries, and ginger. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes. About every 5 minutes, muddle the blackberries and ginger to release the flavors. Once the mixture is done cooking, cool for 10 minutes.
Use a fine mesh strainer to strain the blackberries and ginger from the syrup, reserving the syrup and discarding the blackberries and ginger. This will make enough simple syrup for about 6 drinks.
To make one drink, add the following to a glass: 2 ounces blackberry ginger simple syrup, 2 ounces limeade, 1 ounce vodka, and 3 ounces Prosecco. Top with ice and garnish with a few blackberries and mint leaves. Enjoy!
If you don't have a muddler, you can use the end of a wooden spoon or even a potato masher. Get creative.
The easiest way to peel ginger is by using the inside edge of a small spoon to scrape off the skin. Click here for a website with more details and a video.
