I’m a sucker for champagne drinks.
Maybe it’s because I didn’t drink for a good year or so, but there’s something so fun and invigorating about a glass of bubbly.
We’re hosting family here in Dallas for Easter this year, and I’m already thinking about our Easter brunch menu. Yes, I’m totally that person. And yes, I’m totally fine being that person. My life revolves around baby business and food. (Are y’all really surprised? You shouldn’t be!)
I knew I wanted to throw together a delicious cocktail for our get-together. Champagne has always been a favorite brunch alcohol of mine. I meaaaaaaaan… how can you go wrong with a mimosa?
So while I was brainstorming, I wondered if I could do a take on the classic mimosa.
This Easter Strawberry Champagne is what I came up with… and unsurprisingly, it’s bubbly and sweet and the perfect springtime cocktail.
Please note that it takes on the qualities of a “Winston mimosa,” as my friends call it, which means there’s a lot of champagne and not a lot of the strawberry syrup.
That said, the strawberry simple syrup allows the drink to end on a sweet strawberry note and adds a gorgeous color to the already beautiful Brut Rosé Champagne.
