Author note: Rosé is typically considered a summertime wine. Do not let this deter you from making this drink. The flavor of the grapes and the rosemary pair beautifully with the wine, making it a delicious wintertime cocktail. To make it “bubbly” use sparkling rosé.

7 grapes, chilled

1 tablespoon rosemary simple syrup (see below for recipe)

3 ice cubes

2 teaspoons gin

3 ounces rosé, chilled

2 splashes of lemon juice

rosemary sprig, for serving

grape, for serving

  1. Place grapes into a cocktail shaker or cup, and pour the syrup over the fruit. Muddle the grapes.
  2. Add the ice cubes and pour the gin over the ice. Cover and shake until the gin is chilled and the drink is well mixed.
  3. Strain and pour the mixture into a serving glass, top with rosé and lemon juice. Serve with a rosemary sprig and grape.

for the rosemary simple syrup

1 cup water

1 cup sugar

4 sprigs rosemary

  1. In a small sauce pan add the sugar, water and rosemary sprigs. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally to help dissolve the sugar.
  2. Let simmer for 15 minutes. Remove the rosemary sprigs and strain the water through a sieve into a container. Store in the fridge.
