To concoct this eye-catching beverage, start by taking your favorite cup and filling it with water. Inside, place a short sprig of Rosemary, positioned upside down to achieve the signature Christmas tree effect. Pop the cup into the freezer, allowing the water to freeze around the Rosemary. Once frozen, fill the rest of the glass with your beverage of choice—options range from sparkling water to vodka. For a family-friendly version, opt for juice, ensuring it is diluted or light-colored for the Rosemary to shine through.
Enhance the festive allure by adding a couple of frozen cranberries to complete the look. It’s worth noting that not all glasses are freezer-safe, so exercise caution to avoid breakage. Alternatively, use string and tape to secure the Rosemary in place while adding liquid, freezing it as a whole, as demonstrated in some videos.
The comments sections of these viral videos are brimming with enthusiasm, with people expressing love for the idea and sharing helpful tips to elevate the merriment. Suggestions range from sugaring the Rosemary for a snowy appearance to using edible glitter for added sparkle.
The widespread appeal of this charming creation is evident in the comments:
