A sweet, refreshing cocktail for the summer heat!

Blackberry & Sage Champagne Cocktails

by Dishing Up the Dirt

Prep Time: 15 minutes  |  Cook Time: 10 minutes  |  Serves: 8 cocktails


  • 2 bottles of bubbly (*for a non-alcoholic version, substitute champagne with sparkling water)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 5-6 fresh sage leaves + more for garnish
  • 1 pound fresh blackberries + more for garnish


  1. Combine the honey and water in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir often and once it’s about to reach the point of boiling turn off the heat and add the blackberries and whole sage leaves. Stir until well combined.
  2. Once the syrup as cooled and the berries have broken down a bit pour the mixture (including the sage leaves) into a blender and blend until smooth. Then pour the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve (to remove any blackberry seeds) You will end up with about 2 cups of simple syrup. Keep cool until ready to serve.
  3. Add 1-2 tablespoons of the syrup to each glass and add champagne. Pour in a couple of blackberries and a few sage leaves for garnish and enjoy.


*You will end up with extra simple syrup. It will keep in the fridge for up to 5 days and tastes great on ice cream!
