Summer is about to start and that means Barbecues on the rooftop and who could be more exited about that than us. We moved in last year in May and first thing we did was getting a gas grill and some garden furniture. Until today we do not have a proper kitchen lamp but the garden was ready to rumble within 2 weeks of moving in. 

So instead of Enjoying Berlin‘ Lakes we enjoyed the little baby pool and the and the hot summer did it justice. This year will be about perfectioning the barbecue tradition and therefore today a nice and exceptional aperitif drink with blueberries and rosemary sirup. 

To prepare the sirup is a bit of work but also the fancy part about it, so if you are in a mood for something a bit special, try it, it tastes delicious.

Kir Royal with a twist - Blackberry Rosemary Sirup


What you need

  • 200 g Blackberries
  • 2-3 branches Rosemary
  • 2 spoons of sugar
  • about 200ml water
  • Prosecco

Kir Royal with a twist - Blackberry Rosemary Sirup

To make the sirup, simmer blackberries with a chopped up Rosemary and a bit of sugar and water. It takes roughly 20 minutes, be aware that it thickens when it cools down, so don’t worry if it appears too liquid and let it cool down first.

While it is still hot, put the sirup trough a fine sieve in a small bottle or glass and let cool down.

Just add a bit of sirup and fill up with Prosecco – et voila a fancy aperitif for the next fancy barbecue.
