The Merry Berry Cocktail

I always have a little left over mixed berry sauce in the freezer from when I make pancakes or French toast, and it’s perfect to mix into my cocktails!

I take half a bag of frozen strawberries (about half a cup), blueberries, raspberries and blackberries, then plop them in a sauce pan with 2 tablespoons of sugar. I simply melt them down for about 10 minutes and it makes the yummiest berry sauce!

I always make too much for breakfast, so I simply re-freeze it, and when it thaws, it’s the tastiest purée!

Sake is my favorite spirit to mix with fruit juices and purees, and adding a few rosemary sprigs to it overnight adds an extra herbal note that doesn’t compete with the other delightful flavors in Sorel.

Give this Merry Berry a try if you want to start getting into the holiday spirit!
