Summertime is all about being with friends and enjoying the beautiful weather. With that in mind, we wanted to share a delicious and refreshing cocktail recipe. This champagne spritzer recipe will be the perfect addition to any summer gathering – brunch, outdoor BBQ, or fancy dinner party!
Here’s what you’ll need to make the Strawberry Lemonade Champagne Spritzer:
- Champagne (whatever kind you like!)
- 1lb Fresh strawberries
- 2T sugar
- Lemonade (or make your own! Check out the recipe below)
- Homemade lemonade recipe: In a pot, combine 1 cup of water with 1 3/4 cups sugar. Bring to a boil and stir until sugar is fully dissolved. Let cool and refrigerate. After the syrup mixture is chilled, combine with 1 1/2 cups fresh squeezed lemon juice and 7 more cups of water.
Remove the stems/leaves of the strawberries and give them a rough chop. Sprinkle the sugar on top of the chopped strawberries and set aside for about 20 minutes. Pour lemonade into your champagne flute; fill about 1/3 of the way. Add a spoonful (or two!) of strawberries (don’t forget some of the juices) to the glass. Top off with the champagne to add the perfect refreshing fizz! Make it a virgin cocktail by using ginger ale or sparkling juice!
These are the perfect flavors for the season and you’ll be sure to impress! An added bonus of this recipe is that it helps stretch a bottle of champagne without losing that dressed-up flare! So go ahead and invite all your friends over!
