With the chaos of the holiday season officially upon us, I thought I'd share a beverage that is beautiful, delicious, and a cinch to make: the Raspberry Champagne cocktail, courtesy of Barbie over at Wishful Chef. Concocted with fresh raspberries, a spoonful of honey, and bubbly Champagne, this drink is vibrant and flavorful. Plus, it takes just 10 minutes to whip up a batch, and you can prepare the puree ahead of time. Serve it for a festive Champagne toast at your winter wedding, or whip up a batch for a brunch-themed bridal shower. Cheers!
The Raspberry Champagne Cocktail (Serves 4)
1 cup raspberries (with a few extras for garnish)
1-2 tablespoons honey, to taste
2 tablespoons water
1 bottle Champagne or dry sparkling wine
Directions: Using a blender or hand blender, puree the raspberries with honey and water until smooth. Strain the puree through a fine sieve into a small bowl by gently pressing with a spatula and catching the seeds. Evenly spoon the raspberry puree in the bottom of each of your serving glasses. Then fill each glass with champagne and garnish with raspberries.
