The official drink of the Oscars is Champagne, Piper-Heidsieck that is!  Although we may not be splurging on the upscale choice of the Academy, we can still enjoy a house champaign favorite with a sophisticated garnish!

Serves 4
INGREDIENTS
  • Blackberry Simple Syrup
  • 1/3 cup blackberries (plus eight more for garnish)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
