Festive Fizz Cocktail

It's the holidays! A wonderful and most Booziest time of year. And to make your spirits brighter here is a festive fun cocktail you can whip up with just a few simple ingredients and a couple of really hard shakes.

Festive Fizz Cocktail
Serves 2
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

For Cocktail

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


Make Syrup:

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.

Make Cocktail:

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.



Tis the season to be jolly with this cute little cocktail! YUMMO 😋

What a great cocktail to introduce for the holidays! This will really jazz things up. Thanks! Love that sprig of rosemary you threw in there. :)

This sounds like a wonderful cocktail, Velva! I tried one at Thanksgiving that had a rosemary simple syrup but used cranberry grape juice and prosecco and it was just too sweet. This one sounds so much better!
