    sprig rosemary

For the Cocktail

  • 3

To frost the blackberries for garnish:
Skewer 2 blackberries onto a cocktail pin and place them in the freezer for 2 to 3 hours. Once you remove them from the freezer, they’ll begin to quickly frost. When completely frozen, they’ll stay beautifully frosted for at least 10-15 minutes after they’re removed from the freezer.
