Strawberry Champagne

Monday, December 28, 2015
Strawberry Champagne is the perfect easy cocktail for the holidays. It's a delicious alternative to Mimosas on Christmas and the perfect easy cocktail for New Years Eve.

With the end of the year just days away I thought I would share Strawberry Champagne as a fun cocktail to celebrate the passing of another year.

Strawberry Champagne is super simple to make with only 4 ingredients. We decided to use Prosecco Sparkling Wine to make Strawberry Champagne for it's fresh fruity taste, but Pink Moscato Champagne is equally delicious, with a bit of a sweeter flavor, and leaves the color of the cocktail on the redder side.

I soaked a few strawberries in champagne to garnish the sides of the glasses. After a few hours the strawberries not only become extra juicy, but tickle the tongue with bubbles in every bite! I learned the champagne soaked fruit secret years ago from a friend named Karyn at a summer barbecue. She loves her champagne, and told me the only thing better was dropping some fruit in the bottom of the glass to enjoy after a few top offs.

Strawberry Champagne is a simpler version of our loved Strawberry Grapefruit Mimosas that you might also love.

Just incase you need another reason to pop the bubbly there was some news back in November that enjoying 1-2 glasses of Champagne per week could help prevent alzheimer's and dementia from the phenolic compounds, they are still working on human trials but I may not mind volunteering myself for this study! 

Since we are trying to be healthier in the New Year one of my resolutions might need to include enjoying a glass of bubbly each week for the sake of memory! 

Whole strawberries with Champagne being poured over the top to soak.

First I washed the strawberries well, and placed them in a container just deep enough to cover them with champagne.

Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.

Of course Strawberries soaked in Champagne are a glorious enough treat to enjoy on their own.

To make the Strawberry Puree add: 
  • 6 whole Strawberries with stem removed
  • Juice of 1 whole Lime
  • 1-2 teaspoons Sugar or Honey (optional and will depend on how sweet strawberries are). 

A down shot of strawberry puree in a blender.

Puree until smooth.

Fill glasses 1/4-1/3 of the way full of strawberry puree! 

Strawberry Champagne can range for a light pink to deep red all depending on how much strawberry puree you add.

Garnish side of glass with one of the strawberries soaked in champagne and top off champagne flutes with Prosecco Sparkling Wine, Pink Moscato Champagne, or your favorite Champagne.
