Rosemary-Grape Sparkler

Serves 6
Time 10 min
Light and refreshing with just a hint of autumn, this sparkler is a serious crowd-pleaser for entertaining. Make this drink bolder by using red grapes instead of green for the syrup and topping with Lambrusco or sparkling red wine.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup green grapes
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary plus more for garnish
  • 1/4 cup red grapes halved horizontally
  • 1 (750-ml) bottle dry sparkling white wine, such as Prosecco
Method

In a small food processor or blender, purée green grapes until they are the consistency of loose jam.

Combine grape purée, sugar, 1/2 cup water and rosemary in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally until sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes. Cool syrup completely and remove rosemary sprigs before serving. Makes about 1 cup simple syrup; refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

To serve, divide red grapes among 6 flutes. Pour 1 to 2 tablespoons simple syrup into each flute and top with sparkling wine. Garnish each with a rosemary sprig.
