A Rooftop Soirée and Blackberry Thyme Spritzer Recipe


 Last month, I partnered with Paramount Events partnered to put together a rooftop soirée for friends to celebrate the change of the seasons. Paramount crafted a signature cocktail for the event–a blackberry and thyme spritzer. which they’re sharing below. Guests enjoyed charcuterie and cheese boards with house-made croissants and three types of hummus.

And now for that cocktail recipe.


Blackberry and Thyme Spritzer Recipe – Makes 4 cocktails
1 c. blackberries
1 c. Water
1 c. sugar
1 bottle of champagne
4 ounces or 1/2 c. gin
4 long sprigs of thyme

In a small saucepan, bring blackberries, water, and sugar to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes, until the blackberries are soft and the simple syrup has turned to a bright pink/redish color. Remove from heat, drain blackberries, and allow to cool. Next, begin by adding 1 ounce of gin to each champagne glass, followed by 2 ounces of homemade blackberry simple syrup. Fill the rest of the glass with champagne and top with a sprig of thyme in each glass.
