Strawberry Elderflower Champagne
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. 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.
- 1 bottle of champagne (or sparkling white grape juice for a non-alcoholic drink)
- Fresh strawberries, 2 per serving
- Elderflower Syrup
- Strawberry Preparation: 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.
- Drink Assemblage: 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.
