  • Add vodka, rosemary simple syrup and cranberry juice to cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake and strain into champagne flute.
  • Top off with sparkling wine of choice~ Champagne, prosecco or cava. Garnish cocktail with cranberries and sprig of rosemary.

Rosemary Simple Syrup

  • Mix equal parts sugar and water. Bring to a boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved.
  • Remove from heat and add 4-inch sprig of rosemary, allowing to steep until mixture is cooled.
  • Remove rosemary sprig and strain if needed. Store in sealed jar in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.


  • *Select your cranberry juice based on how sweet you like your cocktail.  Cranberry juice can vary from 5 grams to 28 grams of sugar per serving.  Our go-to cranberry juice has 7 grams of sugar, so the addition of the simple syrup doesn't make it overly sweet.
  • For a mocktail version, omit vodka and substitute sparkling water or ginger ale for the sparkling wine.
