I don’t know about you, but I’ve already seen my fill of eggnog, mulled wine and hot chocolate. Every time I turn on my car or enter a store, I’m bombarded with holiday music. I’ve already grown tired of Christmas music when the big day is still two weeks away!
Don’t get me wrong. I’m no Scrooge. I love all the giving, cheer, and happiness that stems from the holidays. But I do need a break from the rest of the holiday hoopla. I need a sip of this rosemary blackberry limonata!
For the most part, my cocktail recipes are inspired by what I found at the market, what I drank at a restaurant/bar, or something relating to the season. And then some cocktails are born spontaneously. This particular cocktail was the product of a visit to my fridge. On this particular day, I opened the fridge and saw a bowl of blackberries beside a container of rosemary. Once I pulled those ingredients out, I found a lonely can of limonata (sparking lemon soda). The brain started ticking and I grabbed the vodka. I knew these items would come together to create one heck of a cocktail.
