Easy Strawberry Bellini Champagne Cocktail


We've made it to Friday! Another week behind us, and the weekend ahead! I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful Valentine's Day yesterday. With the holiday on a Thursday this year, I feel like that lends itself to being celebrated all weekend, don't you? And these strawberry bellinis are a perfect weekend brunch cocktail!

I love a good mimosa, but sometimes it's fun to mix up the brunch routine. Bellinis are traditionally made with a fruit puree, and topped with champagne. What that means is that unlike mimosas with orange juice, you can really control how much sugar goes into these. Perfect if you're like me, and like your drinks on the dry side!




I love that this is an easy cocktail for a crowd - ladies brunch, anyone? But you can also make the puree and store it in the fridge for a few days, so whenever your fancy strikes for a champagne cocktail, it's prepped and ready to go! 


Serves 2

Ingredients:

1/2 cup fresh strawberries
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon granulated sugar (optional)
Your favorite sparkling wine (I'm currently loving this one!)

Directions: 

Puree the strawberries, lime juice and sugar in your blender or food processor. Top with champagne or sparkling wine and serve!
