Royal Blush Cocktail

Royal Blush Cocktail

Feel like royalty and sip on this royal cocktail! Inspired by champagne cocktails, the Royal Blush turns from green to pink as it's poured into a martini glass. Cool, don’t you think? See it for yourself by following the recipe below:
 
Ingredients
•    1 teaspoon cherry purée (note: recipe below makes 3/4 cup)
•    3 tablespoons vodka
•    1 ½ tablespoon fresh lime juice
•    1 tablespoon simple syrup
•    5 fresh mint leaves
•    1 cup ice cubes
•    ¼ cup dry sparkling wine, chilled

Preparation
To Make Cherry Purée:
In a bowl, purée frozen cherries or all-fruit spread with water. In general: 1 cup of frozen cherries puréed with 2 tablespoons of water makes approximately 3/4 cup purée. To make purée using all-fruit spread, combine 3/4 cup spread with 3/4 cup water. Any extra can be used to make smoothies or as a sauce for ice cream.

To Make Cocktail:
Transfer purée to chilled martini glass. In chilled cocktail shaker, combine vodka, lime juice, and simple syrup. Tear mint leaves in half and add to shaker. Add ice and shake vigorously for 15 seconds. Slowly strain into martini glass without disturbing purée, then top with sparkling wine and serve.
