Tips for Perfect Results

To get the best results from your champagne cocktail recipe:

  • Ensure that your champagne is chilled but not too cold to allow it to retain its bubbles.
  • Use fresh strawberries when they are in season.
  • Don’t overblend the frozen strawberries if you’re making substitutions as they will become too watery.


Can I make this recipe non-alcoholic?

Yes! Simply substitute Brut Champagne or Dry White Wine with sparkling water or soda water.

To make ahead the Strawberry Champagne Cocktail, prepare the strawberry puree and simple syrup according to the recipe instructions. They can be stored in separate airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to 2 days before using.

Also, you can hull and slice the strawberries up to a day ahead of party day. Store the sliced strawberries in an airtight container lined with paper towels, which will absorb any excess moisture and keep them fresh.

Before serving, pour the puree, simple syrup, chilled wine and champagne into a large pitcher and gently stir. Add sliced strawberries, ice cubes and fresh mint leaves. Stir again gently.

For a non-alcoholic version of this cocktail, replace the wine and bubbly with sparkling water or non-alcoholic sparkling cider.

This strawberry champagne cocktail can also be stored in the refrigerator for up to one day after making it. However, when storing it, avoid adding ice cubes or soda until right before serving. The alcohol may cause the drink to become too bitter if stored too long.

Does champagne and strawberries go together?

Champagne and strawberries make an exquisite combination, as the juicy fruit’s natural sweetness perfectly balances the dryness of the bubbly. In addition, the bright colors of the strawberries pop in the glass of champagne, making for an enticing visual display.

What is a good mix with champagne?

As a sommelier, I have come across several interesting champagne cocktails that are worth a try. One of my favorites is the Raspberry Royale, which is a blend of champagne and Chambord, a raspberry liqueur. Another tasty option is the classic Mimosa, which combines your choice of fruit juice (grape, cranberry, orange, raspberry lemonade) with champagne. Lastly, if you’re in the mood for something festive, try the Poinsettia, which mixes Cointreau, cranberry juice, and champagne.

What champagne is best with strawberries?

When it comes to pairing wine with berries, Champagne has always been a popular choice. However, if you want the perfect pairing, it’s important to choose the right type of Champagne. A “demi-sec” Champagne, which is slightly sweeter than a “brut” Champagne, would be an excellent choice for this pairing.
