Festive Fizz Cocktail
Recipe from all recipes
Holiday Simple Syrup
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup water
1/2 cinnamon stick
1 (3-inch) rosemary sprig
1 egg white (If you are concerned about consuming raw egg use 2 tablespoons pasteurized liquid egg whites, such as Egg Beaters).
1/4 cup white rum
1-1/2 tablespoons Holiday Simple Syrup
6 to 8 ounces sparkling rose wine
1. Stir together sugar and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over low heat. Remove from heat and add cinnamon and rosemary. Cover and steep 1 hour.
Note: This makes more syrup than needed: use leftovers in iced tea or another cocktail. Leftover syrup will keep chilled in an airtight container up to 1 month.
2. Discard cinnamon and rosemary. Spoon 1-1/2 tablespoons syrup into a small bowl and refrigerate until cold, about 10 minutes.
3. Put egg white, rum, and chilled syrup in a shaker. Cover and shake hard 15 seconds. Add ice to shaker and shake hard until chilled and frothy, 30 to 45 seconds.
4. Strain into 2 coupe glasses. Top each with 3 to 4 ounces wine. Garnish with a pinch of ground cinnamon and fresh rosemary. Serve immediately.
