Mother's Day Cocktail

Nothing says celebrate like a nice glass of bubbly and this Mother's Day I am hoping to make this recipe for some of the ladies in my life.  I had a bunch of organic berries from the farmer's market so made a berry simple syrup.  This is an easy way to spruce up a simple glass of champagne and can be done with any fruit.  I do love using berries because the result ends up looking so pretty and moms love pretty things.

Berry Simple Syrup

  • 1 cup mixed berries (I used black berries, raspberries and strawberries)
  • 1/2 cup sugar in the raw
  • 1 cup water
  1. Add all ingredients to a small saucepan and simmer on low for about 30 minutes.  
  2. Remove from heat and let cool

To serve this cocktail, pour a tablespoon of the simple syrup into the bottom of a champagne flute.  Top with bubbly and garnish with a fresh berry.
