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.

      Thanks, Jess! It’s quite delicious and the PERFECT excuse to enjoy some champagne!

    • Erin

      Thank you, Lindsey! I hope you enjoy this drink – CHEERS.

  1. Christie

    Puree. Do you mean ready made. Or make your own. This drink sounds delicious. But not experienced in the mixed drink department. I found a recipe for a puree with a dash of sugar in it. Just don’t want to over do the sugar part. Thanks

    • Erin

      Hey Christie! Whenever I make puree, I put a few chopped and hulled strawberries in the blender, then pulse until smooth. No sugar necessary. Then that’ll go into the strawberry simple syrup, listed above. Enjoy, and please let me know if you have any more questions!

  2. Ella Bell

    My daughter doesn’t drink alcohol…need substitute for champagne.

    • Erin

      Hey Ella. Unfortunately, I’ve never made this drink without the champagne, so I cannot tell you with certainty what would be a good substitute. That said, I think lemonade would be delicious here. Who wouldn’t love some sparkling or regular lemonade with strawberry sweetness added?

  3. Jenny

    How far in advance can you make the strawberry simple syrup?

    • Erin

      Hey Jenny! You can make the strawberry simple syrup a few days in advance if you use fresh (as opposed to the ones that are ‘fresh’ but on their last leg of freshness) strawberries in the puree. Enjoy!
