There’s nothing more festive than champagne, and to celebrate our engagement, I’ve chosen a deliciously decadent champagne drink for this week’s Che Belle Cose Cocktail.
"Simply the Best" Strawberry Champagne Cocktail
1/2 cup fresh strawberries
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tsp sugar
champagne or sparkling wine
Wash and hull the strawberries. Put all the strawberries, except one, in a blender. Add vanilla, lemon juice, and sugar, and puree. Pour into a champagne flute half-way (more or less to taste). Top with champagne or sparkling wine, and stir gently. Slide the remaining strawberry onto edge of the glass. Cheers!
