Just a quick recipe for a New Years cocktail. I wanted to do something based on sparkling wine to keep with the festive nature of the holiday. A riff on a classic brunch cocktail, the mimosa, seemed appropriate. In order to make it my own, I decided to add strawberry puree, which conveniently made use of the plethora of frozen strawberries in my freezer.
A twist on a classic brunch cocktail perfect for your New Year's Party
- 12 fl. oz. Sweet Sparkling Wine About 1/2 a standard bottle, chilled
- 12 fl. oz. Orange Juice Chilled
- 1 lb. Frozen Strawberries Defrosted
- 6 Slices Fresh Strawberries For garnish
Blend the frozen strawberries to a puree. Pass the puree through a fine mesh strainer to filter out the seeds.
Add 2 ounces of sparkling wine and 2 ounces of orange juice to each glass.
Top each glass with a tablespoon of the strawberry puree, garnish with a slice of strawberry, and serve immediately.
