A refreshing yet decadent drink, this Strawberry Lime Champagne Cocktail is just about the best thing to serve at your next brunch get-together! It has only three ingredients – super quick and easy to make!
Oh hi friends! It’s time for champaaaagne, and lots of it! OK, a glass each but we love to share, right? ♡
So you might recognize the photo of the strawberries from my Easy-Peasy Lightroom Tutorial and now you know allll about the magic that went into it! (Which is not a lot but I like to brag. Sometimes. A little bit.)
I’ve been wanting to share a champagne cocktail for like, ever!
But I’ve always battled with myself – is it too fancy?
I can drive (read: make Brani drive) to France and pick up a pretty decent bottle of champagne for not a lot of money.
But the beauty of this is that you can make it with ANY sparkling pink wine and if you’re feeling super rebellious you can even use a white one.
I promise I will only pout for a little while.
Now let’s get a bit personal for a minute.
I think I have hinted at my small obsessive compulsive habit a few times here on the blog now and the time has come to get rid of some quirks once and for all.
I think I could even make this into a campaign
“Do you suffer from having to sort your baby’s plastic spoons by color? Is it impossible for you to have a fork out of place in the drawer? Is it absolutely necessary for your well-being to drink all the pink champagne in strawberry lime champagne cocktails?”
OK I made that last one up but GUYS!!!! Our cutlery drawer is totally out of order and I’m so fine with it.
(This makes me sound so lame, please don’t goooo! I promise I’m otherwise pretty cool to
hang out read-out? blog-out? with!)
So let’s celebrate that humoooongous victory of mine with these nice strawberry lime champagne cocktails.
And uhm, just for the record: I did NOT alter the color of this drink in post-processing. And there’s no food coloring involved either. It’s just the uber-awesomeness of fresh strawberry purée paired with a bit of lime juice.
Now please excuse me, I need to go NOT reorder the spoons in the drawer. I better get myself a glass of champagne…
Strawberry Lime Champagne Cocktail
- 3 tablespoons fresh strawberry purée yield from about 2 large berries
- 1/2 tablespoon lime juice
- 1/3 - 1/2 cup pink champagne prosecco or other sparkling wine, well chilled, or regular
- Additional strawberries lime wedges and mint sprigs for garnish (optional)
- Mix the strawberry purée with the lime juice and pour it into a champagne flûte. Carefully top with the champagne and garnish before serving immediately.
I wrote down the ingredients per glas so you can better estimate how much you need for both smaller and larger parties.
It's possible to make the strawberry purée a few hours in advance. Just add the lime juice, cover and refrigerate. The acid will preserve it for a while.
If you're strawberries are not sweet enough, add about 1/2 teaspoon of sugar per glas to the purée.
