In the champagne flute, a luscious strawberry syrup is being gently poured to craft the perfect Strawberry Bellinis.

Strawberry Syrup for Your Bellinis

Traditional Bellinis typically combine sparkling wine with peach nectar, but in this recipe, we use a luscious strawberry syrup for a delectable twist. Crafting this sweet syrup is a breeze, requiring only three ingredients: ripe strawberries, sugar, and water. Simply combine them in a saucepan and bring to a boil while stirring constantly, then let it cool. For a charming presentation, consider serving it in an elegant dressing container alongside a bottle of champagne, allowing your guests to customize their own cocktails. It requires minimal effort and adds a touch of elegance to your brunch table.

Tips for Crafting Perfectly Pretty Strawberry Bellinis

  1. Select your favorite champagne to elevate the cocktail. A sparkling Moscato is a great choice.
  2. For a clearer strawberry syrup, remove the whole strawberries after a few minutes of boiling and let the simple syrup cool completely.
  3. If you prefer a denser syrup with a more pronounced strawberry flavor, mash the berries in the sugar water and continue boiling for an extra three minutes. Then, blend the mixture and let it cool before adding it to the champagne.
  4. For an extra refined cocktail, strain the strawberry syrup through a cheesecloth to remove any remaining fibers and seeds. If you enjoy the richer strawberry flavor, you can leave them in and blend everything together.
  5. The champagne and berry mixture won’t naturally blend, so if you or your guests prefer them mixed, stir gently to maintain those delightful champagne bubbles.
  6. If you’d like a non-alcoholic version, simply add club soda or lemon-lime soda to the strawberry syrup. It’s equally delicious!

Champagne is carefully poured into the glass with the strawberry syrup, creating a mesmerizing fusion of flavors.
