Festive ‘snow globe’ mocktail
This is a gorgeous way of serving welcome drinks - particularly for non-drinkers. You’ll need to start it the night before, but the effort-to-return on WOW factor is well worth it. Sparkling water is enough for effect, or you could splice it with a clear spirit to turn it into a Christmas cocktail. For snow-globe champagne, you could also do this with glass champagne flutes (crystal is too delicate) and using longer rosemary sprigs, filling the fruit and water to a third way up the glass before freezing. Pull the glasses out as close to serving as possible.PRINT
- 8 sprigs fresh rosemary washed
- 1 pomegranate’s worth of seeds or 8 cherries, pitted and quartered
- Prep all of your ingredients before starting. Put 2 tablespoons of either pomegranate or cherries in the bottom of clear tumblers or squat glasses.
- Grab a skewer to hold each rosemary sprig upside down in the glass. Placing the sprig of the rosemary twig-down will help to create the Christmas tree effect.
- Fill with water to just cover the fruit. Gently place into the freezer, adjusting any skewers or twigs to ensure they stay upright while freezing. Leave to freeze solid, preferably overnight.
- When ready to serve, remove from the freezer and pour over the drink of choice and pause for applause.
