    Instructions
    To make the Christmas Tree Drink:
    • Take one sprig of rosemary turn it upside down so that the rosemary leaves point down and place it in a freezer-safe glass. Use a piece of string and tie a knot around the stem of the rosemary, then use tape to secure the string on the glass so that the rosemary spring is propped up in the middle of the glass.
      TIP: Glasses that are wider at the base and slope inward at the top (such as these glasses) work best to help stop the ice from floating to the top.
    • Once the rosemary is secure add a few cranberries or pomegranate seeds to the bottom of the glass. Add an inch or two of water to the bottom of the glass so that the bottom of the rosemary is submerged in the water. Repeat to make as many Christmas Tree Drinks as desired. Place in the freezer and freeze for a couple of hours or overnight until the ice is solid.
    • Once you are ready to enjoy your drink, cut off the string or just snip off the top of the rosemary sprig to free it from the sting. Remove the tape and string and discard. Choose your favorite cocktail or mocktail recipe above or just use your favorite clear sparkling beverage. You want the beverage to be clear so that you can see the rosemary tree and I like the drink to be sparkling as it looks like snow :)
    To make a cocktail or mocktail:
    • Each cocktail or mocktail recipe above is one serving. Add the ingredients in order topping with the sparkling beverage last.
