Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 1

Ingredients 

For the Meyer Lemon Blackberry Syrup: (makes enough syrup for 8 drinks) 

  • 1/2 Cup lemon juice , Meyer, freshly squeezed
  • 1/2 Cup sugar
  • 2 Tablespoon jam, seedless blackberry

For the Meyer Lemon Blackberry Jam Prosecco Cocktail

  • 1 Ounce Meyer lemon blackberry syrup
  • 1 Ounce vodka , vanilla
  • 4 Ounces Prosecco, chilled
  • blackberries, fresh or frozen
  • Edible gold confetti stars or gold sanding sugar
  • Wedge Lemon

Instructions 

For the Meyer Lemon Blackberry Syrup

  • In a small sauce pot over medium heat, add freshly squeezed lemon juice and granulated sugar. Whisk until sugar dissolves.
  • Add blackberry jam and, whisk again, until blackberry is completely incorporated, and no clumps are left in the pan. Do not allow the mixture to boil. It just needs to be warm enough to dissolve the ingredients. Store prepared syrup in a sealable jar or bottle in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  • Allow it to cool down to at least room temperature before using (about 10 minutes in the freezer or about 25 minutes in the refrigerator).  

For the Meyer Lemon Blackberry Jam Prosecco Cocktail

  • Lightly run a lemon wedge around the rim of a champagne flute. Be careful you don’t wet the rim too much as the edible confetti is meant to start breaking down when it gets wet. Dip the wetted rim into the edible gold stars to make them stick. 
  • Pour Meyer lemon blackberry jam syrup into the bottom of the rimmed champagne coupe. Add the vanilla vodka to the glass by pouring it down the sidewall of the glass. This makes it less likely to mix-in with the syrup, creating a layered effect.  Repeat this step with your chilled prosecco, leaving enough room to top with your blackberries. 
  • Add fresh or frozen blackberries to each glass. They will rise and fall due to the carbonation and, as the drinks sit, the blackberries will begin to slightly mix the drink, creating a pink-to-berry-red, ombre effect. Optional: Serve the cocktails with decorative swizzle sticks if you’d like to give your guests the option to mix-in the lemon-blackberry syrup before drinking.
