Finding a wintery cocktail that you actually want to drink is harder than you would think. It is easy to find a hot beverage recipe but let’s be real, how many hot toddies can you drink?! Most of the things that we mix alcohol with taste like summer. As much as I am pining to be on a beach, I think that I need to face the cold hard fact that it is the dead of winter. Luckily, I know the perfect trick for making any cocktail look wintery. I love adding this garnish to champagne because people think that it is so fancy and impressive but really it is so easy!
Let’s make some snowy rosemary for your next drink...
Lay parchment paper down on your counter
Pour a pile of raw cane sugar onto the parchment paper (you can also use granulated sugar)
Run your rosemary sprigs under the faucet to get them wet
Lay the rosemary sprigs on some paper towels to let them dry off a bit (we want them to be pretty damp but not soaking wet or the sugar will get clumpy)
Roll the rosemary in the sugar
Lay the rosemary on the parchment paper to let it dry (you can leave it like this for up to 24 hours if you want to)
- Place the rosemary sprig into your glass and enjoy the glistening effect of this magical season without actually stepping outside and into the cold
