The foamy cap in this bubby drink comes from egg whites, a classic trick for giving cocktails a rich, creamy texture.

Instructions Checklist
  • Stir together sugar and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over low heat. Remove from heat and add cinnamon and rosemary. Cover and let steep 1 hour.

  • Discard cinnamon and rosemary. Spoon 1 1/2 tablespoons syrup into a small bowl and refrigerate until cold, about 10 minutes.

  • Put egg white, rum, and chilled syrup in a shaker. Cover and shake hard 15 seconds. Add ice to shaker and shake hard until chilled and frothy, 30 to 45 seconds.

  • Strain into 2 coupe glasses. Top each with 3 to 4 ounces wine. Garnish with a pinch of ground cinnamon and fresh rosemary. Serve immediately.

Cook's Note:

Any kind of dry sparkling wine would work. Make sure it's from a freshly opened bottle, or else it won't fizz.

Yum! I didn't expect to like rum with rosé but it was delicious and beautiful to boot. I will definitely be making these again for New Year's Eve. PS: Do not fear the egg white! Read More
