Strawberries & Champagne Valentine’s Day Cocktail

Strawberries and champagne are two things that just naturally go together, and are the perfect thing to serve for Valentine’s Day!

I started dreaming up this recipe a few weeks ago and initially thought it would be delicious to cook down the strawberries into a chunky, sweet compote. Yes, this would be divine, but it would be a long prep time, and honestly who wants to cook to enjoy a cocktail? Cocktails should be enjoyed, while cooking! ;)

So instead of cooking down the berries, I decided to let them sit in sugar for a little while. They same way you’d let them sit for strawberry shortcake or for a strawberry and cream crepe cake!

While they rest, they release their juices, and make a wonderful cocktail base.

Then, use a muddler to break them down into drinkable pieces that add texture and flavor to this cocktail!

To take this cocktail to the next level, shake the strawberries over ice with a little strawberry flavored vodka. Serve this mixture over ice and top with champagne. Absolutely delicious!

If you want to make this cocktail a little more special, you can add a sugared rim to the cocktail glass!

How to sugar rim a glass:

Step 1: Rub the wet part of a slice of fruit (lemon, lime, strawberry, etc…) along the rim of the cocktail glass.

Step 2: Fill a small dish with sugar (coarse works best, but granulated will work too).

Step 3: Turn the glass upside down, and dip the rim of the glass into the sugar.

Step 4: Remove the glass from the sugar and give a gentle shake to remove excess sugar. Add your favorite cocktail, and enjoy!
