1 750 ml bottle sparkling wine, Champagne or prosecco
1 C vodka
½ C honey
2 hibiscus-flavored tea bags
24 blackberries, fresh
Makes 8 cocktails
1. In a pitcher, combine the vodka and tea bags. Let stand at room temperature for 2 hours and then discard the tea bags. Refrigerate the tea-infused vodka until cold.
2. For each cocktail, muddle 2 blackberries with 1 or 2 teaspoons honey in a cocktail shaker—make it more or less sweet based on preference—add 1 ounce tea-infused vodka and 1 teaspoon cold water, then shake vigorously for 30 seconds.
3. Strain into a flute to the halfway mark then fill the glass with sparkling wine, Champagne or prosecco. Garnish with a blackberry and serve.
