There’s just something so fun and special about Champagne. I’m not sure if it’s the bubbles or all of the different flavor combinations there are, but, to me, any type of champagne cocktail is simply irresistible. I rarely have them, which is a total shame, since they are so easy to make.

With the warmer weather coming up, I’ve been thinking about champagne cocktails a lot. I know the norm is to just simply add different types of juice to champagne for flavor variations, but I wanted something a little bit different.

I had just picked up some strawberries at the grocery store, and, since they are supposed to enhance the flavor of champagne, they seemed to be a perfect fit. I combined a small handful of the fresh strawberries with a bit of sugar and some water, and allowed them to simmer for several minutes.

Next, after letting the mixture cool, I simply added a bit of it to a fluted glass and then filled it with champagne. While the strawberry flavor isn’t overpowering, it makes for a nice refreshing drink.
