Snowglobe Rosemary Collins
Unleash the magic of the season with a Snowglobe Rosemary Collins—a blend of rosemary, lemon, vodka, and a touch of edible glitter, all enclosed in a festive snowglobe ice.Jump to Recipe
The Snowglobe Rosemary Collins is almost too pretty to drink! The combo of rosemary’s earthy freshness and the zesty burst of lemon meld seamlessly with crisp vodka, all adorned with a dash of edible glitter.
The most fun part? Crafting the snowglobe ice from coconut, cranberries, and a miniature rosemary tree, bringing a touch of festive magic. I sprinkled shredded coconut and cranberries in the bottom of a glass, then added some water. I snipped a piece of fragrant rosemary for the tree, stuck it in the bottom of the glass and then froze until solid.
Rosemary syrup is so easy to make for this cocktail and adds the perfect herbal element. Whether you’re surrounded by snow or not, this cocktail promises a holiday season filled with joy and flavor!
Crafting the Snowglobe Rosemary Collins takes just 5 minutes after you prep your snowglobe glass. To create the snowglobe ice, sprinkle shredded coconut and cranberries in the bottom of a glass, then add some water. Next, snip a piece of fragrant rosemary for the tree, snuggle it in the bottom of the glass and then freeze until solid.
Once your snowglobe is ready, prepare the cocktail. Start by combining vodka, rosemary syrup, and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously until well-chilled, allowing the flavors to meld. Add the club soda, then strain the mixture into your snowglobe prepared glass over ice.
But here’s the extra fun part—add a dash of edible glitter for a touch of shimmer!
How do I make rosemary syrup?
To craft rosemary syrup, combine equal parts water and sugar in a saucepan and dissolve the sugar over medium heat. Add bruised rosemary sprigs, simmer for 5-7 minutes, cool, strain, and store in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 weeks. Use this aromatic syrup to enhance the flavor of cocktails like the Snowglobe Rosemary Collins.
Can I skip the edible glitter?
Yes! The edible glitter is optional, but it adds a touch of festive sparkle to your Snowglobe Rosemary Collins. Feel free to customize your experience based on your preference for a whimsical, glittering sip.
Is there a substitute for rosemary syrup if I don’t have it on hand?
If you’re out of rosemary syrup, you can substitute with a simple syrup and add a few fresh rosemary leaves to the cocktail for a similar herbal note. However, making rosemary syrup is easy and I recommend it for the authentic flavor profile.
Is there a specific type of coconut to use for the snowglobe ice? Use shredded or flaked sweetened coconut for the snowglobe ice. The sweetness complements the cocktail, and the texture creates a fun frozen effect!
