2 parts prosecco
1/2 part rosemary simple syrup
1/2 part lemon juice

Evoking family nostalgia with a little sparkle, the Concord Fizz at Timonium's Five: A Martini Bar, adjacent to and owned by the Christopher Daniel restaurant, is a punchy drink for the holiday season. Add in rosemary, a key ingredient to this grape- and gin-based cocktail and you even get the Christmas tree. Bar manager Eric Meyers' innovation pays off.
