The Explosive Red Berry Fizz Cocktail
For this Cocktail, you will need to following ingredients.
- Rebula Rosa (Sparkling Wine)
- Chambord (Sweet Raspberry Liquere)
- Red Sugar
- Red Berries
It’s not easy to find red sugar, so I enlisted help from The Salty Rim co. using their number #9 tin, Brazen Red Cocktail Sugar, the quality is outstanding in both the sugars and salts which they produce, but also the packaging which contains it. They currently have #12 different tins available, including different colours and flavours, so check them out.
How To Make The Explosive Red Berry Fizz Cocktail
- First, grab your honey and spread a small amount of it around the rim of your glass.
- Tip some of your sugar onto a plate and roll the rim of your glass around until the rim is covered in sugar, it doesn’t matter if the honey and sugar start dripping down the side, that’s will help make it look explosive.
- Now pour a drop of Chambord, this stuff is sweet, so you don’t need a lot, you could also use Grenadine or any other sweet syrup you have.
- Top up with the sparkling wine.
- Now for the explosive part, drop in a healthy handful of small redcurrants and watch the thing bubble, just like an underwater explosion or erupting volcano.
Now it’s time to taste, either as the bubbles are still going or after it’s settled down, that’s up to you.
The Explosive Red Berry Fizz Cocktail – Tasting Notes
Aroma – “Sweet red sugar, concentrated red berries and honey on the aroma.”
Flavour – “A sweet burst starts off the experience, like seeing an explosion from afar, the sound then hits with silky red berries, redcurrants, ripe raspberries and strawberries, then if you bite down on a redcurrant you get the aftershock or sharp red berry flavours.”
This was an amazing Cocktail, perfect for anyone who loves to enjoy some red berries, a combination of sweet and dry, working in their own time slots during the ride, a well balanced red berry Cocktail that’s worth creating.
