It’s hot out, strawberries are cheap, delicious and in season. I’m not feeling like whisky or a heavy cocktail right now. I want something cold and refreshing. I got a whole tray of fresh organic strawberries from the farmer’s market for $5! All I need is a sparkling wine and St. Germain elderflower liqueur and I’ve got the makings for a winner.
In a collins glass add 3-4 strawberries and muddle into puree. Add ice to the glass and 1 ounce of St. Germain. Finally, top with a dry sparkler such as Brut Champagne, Dry Sparkling Wine, or Brut Rosé. If you are using Champagne give me a call. Garnish with a mint sprig. Voila! It’s that easy!
