Easy and Delicious Strawberry Elderflower Champagne Recipe
Strawberry Elderflower Champagne is an elegant drink, for sure, and what better time to experiment with the great taste combination of strawberries and elderflowers than in spring, when u-pick strawberry stands are open, and the ripest, freshest strawberries are yours for a song. While Elderflower Cordials and Syrups are fairly common in grocery stores in Europe, if you live in the US you’ll probably need to make your own. Don’t worry, its completely easy and we’ve got a great recipe for you. The best elderflower syrup takes a couple days to marinate in your refrigerator, so be sure to plan ahead. Strawberry Elderflower Champagne is a great way to celebrate the end of winter, Mother’s Day, Graduation, Weddings, and other special occasions, too. Grab yourself some good champagne (or sparkling grape juice if you prefer a non-alcoholic version), and allow at least 30 minutes for the strawberries to macerate in the elderflower syrup.
How to Make Strawberry Elderflower Champagne
1 bottle of champagne (or sparkling white grape juice for a non-alcoholic drink)
Fresh strawberries, 2 per serving
You will need at least two strawberries for each serving. Rinse strawberries in cold water, slice off the stem, cut in half and place in bowl. Cover strawberries with elderflower syrup and allow to macerate at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Place 4 strawberry halves in the bottom of each champagne flute. Pour some of the elderflower syrup over the strawberries. Top with chilled champagne and serve immediately.
