What’s Galentine’s Day?
To quote Leslie Knope (patron saint of Galentine’s Day):
“Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it, breakfast-style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It’s like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus frittatas.”
Sadly, Galentine’s Day falls on a Monday so there isn’t much brunch time to be had. Also most of my friends are now scattered around the country. #adultlife
But still, the Galentine’s Day spirit is alive and well in me, and I wanted to share a delicious brunch-worthy drink recipe that’s perfect for every day!
Blackberry Thyme Spritzer
- 1/3 cup blackberries
- 1/3 cup water
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 bottle champagne
- 1 bottle pink lemonade
- Thyme sprigs
To make the drink:
- Add blackberries, water and sugar to a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and let simmer for 10 minutes to create a blackberry simple syrup.
- Strain the berries and let the syrup cool a little. Add two tablespoons of syrup to each glass and fill with 2 parts champagne and 1 part pink lemonade.
- Garnish with a thyme sprig and a few blackberries.
And voila! Simple, easy and delicious.
