Here’s a nice brunch or pre-dinner sparkling cocktail. It is our first recipe using a home-made Strawberry Shrub. The key to this drink is making sure the glass, shrub and sparkling wine or champagne are cold. Pouring the sparkling wine slowly prevents it from foaming over the top of the glass.
1/2 ounce strawberry shrub
Chilled sparkling wine
Pour the shrub into a chilled champagne flute. Lift and tilt the glass and slowly fill it with sparkling wine. Garnish with a mint sprig.
