Here’s a yummy recipe for a great cocktail. Remember no Memorial Day picnic should be without strawberries!!
450g strawberries, sliced and diced
1 tbs icing sugar
Crushed ice (optional, but refreshing)
2/3 cup (165ml) vodka, chilled
1 bottle sparkling wine, chilled
Place the strawberries and icing sugar in a blender or food processor and blend or process until mixture forms smooth puree.
Pass the puree through a fine sieve into a bowl and discard the seeds in the sieve. Cover the puree with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator.
Half-fill 8 champagne flutes/ or other tall glass with the crushed ice, if using. Divide the chilled strawberry puree among the flutes, then top each with a splash of vodka. Top up with the sparkling wine.
