The Recipe How-To

“Add a pop of bubbles to your fruit salad”

Step 1: Prepare the Fruits

First, gather all the fruits that you want in your champagne fruit recipe. I recommend using pineapple, strawberries, and a melon ball of your choice. Wash and dry all the fruits thoroughly.

Next, slice the pineapple into small pieces and hull the strawberries. You can also use whole strawberries for added aesthetic appeal.

Pro tip: For an added kick, try adding a small piece of ginger at this stage.

Step 2: Add Brandy or Honey (Optional)

This step is optional but it gives a unique taste to your champagne fruit recipe. You can add 2 tablespoons of brandy or honey to your fruits. Mix well and let it sit for a few minutes to marinate.

Step 3: Pour in Champagne or Sparkling Wine

Pour the fruits into a large pitcher or a punch bowl, then add the champagne or sparkling wine of your choice! I recommend using strawberry champagne, mixed champagne, or classic champagne cocktail for great results.

Pro tip: For tropical fruit lovers, passion fruit mixed with lemon-lime soda or pineapple juice can also make for an exciting combination!

Step 4: Finish with Orange Juice and More Fruits

Add orange juice (around ¼ cup) and more sliced fruits to finish off your champagne fruit recipe beautifully.

Pro tip: Adding raspberries, cherries, cranberries, or pomegranate seeds makes the cocktail look extra pretty!

Serve immediately and enjoy your delicious drink! This recipe makes about 6-8 servings.

Note: If you don’t have fresh fruits available, you can use frozen ones instead! Just make sure to use 2 cups of fresh frozen fruits instead of the recommended cup measurement.

Now that you know how to make champagne fruit punch with these simple steps, experiment with different combinations of fruits and sparkling wine to find your personal favorite!

Substitutions and Variations

“Cheers to a healthy and refreshing snack”

Now, let’s talk about how you can make some substitutions and variations to this Champagne Fruit Recipe.

First off, if you’re not a fan of pineapple, you can swap it out for another tropical fruit like mango or papaya. Similarly, if melon isn’t your thing, try using fresh peeled peaches instead.

For the honey-ginger syrup, you could experiment with different types of sweeteners such as agave or maple syrup. If you don’t have fresh ginger on hand, substitute for ginger powder instead.

If you want to make this recipe alcohol-free, swap out the champagne for sparkling apple cider or club soda. You could even omit the bubbly altogether and turn this into a classic fruit punch recipe that children and non-drinkers can enjoy.

Fresh fruit is key for this recipe, but you can also use frozen fruit in a pinch. Just thaw before adding to the bowl or pitcher.

For an extra festive touch, garnish your cocktail look with sliced strawberries, raspberries or cherries. Add cranberries or pomegranate seeds to give it a pop of color and a tangy flavor.

The possibilities are endless when it comes to variations and substitutions for this Champagne Fruit Recipe. Experiment with different fruits and flavors to find your favorite combination.

Serving and Pairing

“Fancy fruit for any occasion”


If you’re looking to impress your friends and family with a beautiful and delicious drink, this Champagne Fruit Recipe is the perfect choice. This recipe makes a cocktail that looks extra pretty, thanks to the addition of fresh fruit like melon balls, whole strawberries, raspberries, cherries, cranberries, and pomegranate seeds. The variety of fruits not only makes this cocktail look gorgeous but also adds a unique flavor profile to the mix.

This recipe works well as either a standalone cocktail or as part of a punch bowl for larger gatherings. If you’re looking to make a non-alcoholic version of this recipe, simply remove the champagne and replace it with sparkling water or lemon-lime soda.

When it comes to pairing this cocktail with food, the sweet and tangy flavors of the fruit pairs well with light appetizers like cheese platters or bruschetta. For something heartier, try serving this cocktail alongside grilled chicken or shrimp skewers. The ginger and honey flavors in this recipe match particularly well with Asian-inspired dishes like sushi or stir fry.

If you want to take things up a notch, consider pairing this recipe with other champagne-based cocktails like classic Champagne cocktail or a Bellini. A glass of strawberry champagne adds a touch of elegance to dessert pairings such as chocolate truffles or cheesecake.

Overall, this refreshing and bubbly cocktail can be served at any occasion throughout the year, whether at brunch or happy hour, and pairs perfectly with light snacks or more substantial meals.

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

“A delicious way to indulge in some bubbly”

One of the great things about this Champagne Fruit Recipe is how easy it is to make, but did you know that you can also prepare it ahead of time? This recipe can be made up to 24 hours in advance, making it perfect for special occasions or when hosting a party.

If you do make it ahead of time, be sure to store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to serve. I recommend giving it a good stir before serving so that all the fruit is evenly coated in the champagne cocktail mixture.

In terms of reheating, this recipe is best served cold and doesn’t require any additional reheating. However, if you want to add a little warmth to it, you can pop it in the microwave for a few seconds – just be careful not to overheat it as that may affect the texture and flavor of the fruit.

This recipe also works well as leftovers and can be stored in the fridge for up to 2-3 days. Just note that the fruit will become softer over time as it sits in the champagne cocktail mixture.

Overall, this Champagne Fruit Recipe is a versatile one that can be made ahead of time and stored with ease. Whether enjoyed at room temperature or chilled straight from the fridge, it’s a beautiful and tasty addition to any gathering.

Tips for Perfect Results

“An elegant twist on your average fruit bowl”

To get the perfect results with this champagne fruit recipe, there are a few tips and tricks you should keep in mind.

Firstly, make sure to use the best champagne or sparkling wine you can afford. It doesn’t necessarily have to be the most expensive one, but something that pairs well with fruits and enhances their flavors.

Secondly, don’t skimp on the fresh fruit. While frozen fruit can be used in a pinch, it won’t have the same taste and texture as fresh fruit.

Thirdly, consider mixing up the fruits you use. While the recipe calls for pineapple, melon balls, strawberries, and passion fruit, you can also add raspberries, cherries, cranberries or pomegranate seeds for extra color and flavor.

Fourthly, add ginger and honey to give this classic champagne cocktail a unique twist. The ginger adds a little bit of heat which pairs well with the sweetness of the honey.

Fifthly and finally, make sure to chill everything before serving – the champagne or sparkling wine, the orange juice and all your cut-up fruit – this makes it more refreshing on hot summer days.

By following these tips, your champagne fruit punch recipe will be bursting with flavor and sure to impress your guests at any occasion.

What can I mix with champagne?

One mixture is the Raspberry Royale, which comprises the sweet raspberry liqueur Chambord and champagne. Another is the classic Mimosa, where fruit juice and champagne comprise a bubbly, flavourful drink. Lastly, the Poinsettia, which blends Cointreau, cranberry juice, and champagne to make a tangy and refreshing drink.

Do you put fruit in champagne?

As a sommelier, I often come across the addition of fresh fruit to Champagne. While it is a commonly practiced technique, I must confess that there are certain Champagnes that could be accentuated by the addition of a slice of luscious strawberry or tangy raspberries during summertime.
