We usually have our go-to drinks around here when we get together. You’ve got beer, wine, and champagne… all easy to serve with just one pour.
A few weeks ago I wanted something a little different than just the basic champagne drink, so I quickly whipped up this crisp and refreshing strawberry champagne spritzer. I got the idea from the “mocktail” i’ve been drinking this summer. Muddled strawberries, sparkling water, and lime.
In a shaker, or glass, I muddle enough strawberries to last for a few servings. This way you don’t have to muddle for each individual drink, making it much easier and quicker to serve. For the cocktail version of this drink, I used a natural lemonade instead of fresh squeezed lime. I felt the lemonade went a little better with champagne than lime. For the finishing touch, I sliced up some strawberries and dunked them inside the glass, and garnished the glass with a full strawberry.
It really is a simple drink that you and an of your guest this summer will enjoy. It’s also a nice and cold cocktail that can be enjoyed outdoors! Check out the full recipe below.

Muddle strawberries, number of strawberries depends on how many drinks you are going to make. Usually around 2-3 per serving. Add one oz of lemonade to glass and then pour sparkling wine. Add one tablespoon of strawberry mixture to your drink and enjoy!
