One of my favorite alcoholic beverages is champagne.  I used to think it was just for celebrating but now I enjoy sipping on a glass any time.  It’s bubbly, refreshing, and always fun to drink.  Plus you can make some really fun cocktails using champagne!

Give your bubbly a kick of flavor and color with these Strawberry Bellini's!

A refreshing champagne cocktail is a Bellini.  The original Bellini consisted of Prosecco mixed with peach puree or peach nectar.  It’s sweet, sparkling, and perfect for brunch or a cocktail party.  Since the original came about people have been enjoying Bellini’s in a variety of flavors.

It's easy to make a quick strawberry freezer sauce.

A few weeks ago I made a delicious strawberry sauce that is great to freeze and use anytime throughout the year.   I used the sauce to make a strawberry swirl cheesecake but I had some leftover.  I thought putting it in champagne would make a light and refreshing Strawberry Bellini.

Make this delicious strawberry sauce to put in the Strawberry Bellini

I simply put a spoonful of the strawberry sauce in a glass, filled it with sparkling wine (or champagne), then topped it off with a fresh strawberry.  The resulting beverage was slightly sweet, fruity, and totally delicious.  I could totally see myself sipping on one of these while outside at a summer brunch.  Plus, you can make the strawberry sauce, freeze it, and then have it on hand anytime you have extra champagne!

Strawberry Bellini's are the perfect brunch cocktail!
