Blackberry Cobbler Cocktail

Blackberry Cobbler Cocktail

The Holiday Recipe Club and blog hop today features recipes having at least one of three flavors: wine, white chocolate, and/or marscapone. As it turns out, the fine folks at Driscoll’s Berries had sent some recipes to me to try. One of them really sparked my interest: Blackberry Cobbler Cocktail. Although I am primarily a red wine drinker, I do enjoy a nice cocktail on occasion.

This cocktail has dark fruit flavors found in red wine. Blackberry, blueberry, and black currant are all in there. The gin gives it a bit of spice. A splash of sparkling wine gives it a bit of fizz for a lovely, festive beverage. Full of anti-oxidant real fruit juices, it packs a dose of healthy into the mix. The fruit flavors really shine and blackberry lovers will enjoy it a great deal.

Cobblers are popular here in the South. I have had and made many cobblers and crisps, including a Blueberry Crisp. With the availability of blackberries now at the store, I can use the leftover topping from that recipe to make a quick blackberry crisp. Or I will use the blackberries to make this cocktail for my friends. New Year’s Eve is almost here and it would be another excuse to pop open the bubbly!

Thanks to Erin (@BigFatBaker) for inviting me to participate in the Holiday Recipe Club and blog hop again. Thanks also to Driscoll’s Berries for the recipe of this delicious cocktail.

Ooh, this sounds tasty! I love sparkly drinks, and I’d love the sweetness that infusing the berries in there would bring. :)

It is very tasty. It is the first cocktail I have run across with the dark fruits I enjoy all in one glass.

This looks amazingly refreshing! Except I would have to substitute the gin for vodka or rum (I have a very strong aversion)!

I’m sure it would be just fine with vodka or run instead of gin. The fruit flavors will shine through and they are the main attraction of this drink anyway.

Ooh Renee, this sparkling drink sounds so good! My bf loves blackberries and would definitely drink this if I made it for him. I think this will be perfect for our anniversary date coming up soon. :)
