Not too long ago I shared my blackberry sauce. That sauce was created because I dreamt up this cocktail using blackberry nectar but then learned blackberry nectar didn’t exist.

Well who says dreams don’t come true?  Thanks to my own blackberry sauce recipe, I was able to make my own dream come true!

Because I made a whole lotta sauce, way more than was needed for a few (or a few dozen) cocktails, I shared it first. I have plans for the remaining blackberry sauce, but without further ado, the reason you’re reading, Blackberry Sparkle.

This drink was everything I wanted it to be. Fruity, not overly sweet, with just a hint of spice from the ginger ale. And last but not least, bubbly.

What is Prosecco?

Prosecco is Italy’s answer to France’s Champagne. The wine ranges from Brut to dry to extra dry, depending on the amount of residual sugar left in the wine.

Now if sweet cocktails are your passion, switch out the Prosecco for a Moscato. Moscato wines are much sweeter and are considered a dessert wine. Substituting it for the Prosecco will definitely make this a dessert cocktail.

My recommendation would be for breakfast, brunch, or as a pre-dinner drink, use Prosecco, but for dessert, go with the Moscato. There, I’ve covered the bases.

I have made this little drink several times since dreaming it up and each time I think I fall in love with it a bit more. Or maybe I’ve simply impressed myself by making my own cocktail recipe and not relying on my best friend for her help.

But she did have a couple of glasses and gave it her seal of approval. So we’re good!

    Gorgeous! Love the color and using fresh-made syrup/sauce for the fruit. More fiber that way:) I’m definitely a drink before dinner person so I will be using Prosecco.
