There’s nothing that says “party” quite like pink champagne. Like a glass of Marilyn Monroe, all decked out and ready to steal the show, fill a cocktail cup with a bit of blushy bubbly and you’ve added instant sparkle to just about any occasion.
With this pretty pink cocktail, you can add a kiss of sweetness to your celebration, too.
Pretty pink champagne, mixed with mulled strawberries and a splash of creamy pina colada mix (or melted ice cream—you pick the flavor combo here!) creates a gorgeous party punch that tastes like a bellini in a bikini. It’s pure cocktail perfection.
Here’s the mixology behind this marvel:
Just a few simple ingredients are needed.
1) Chilled pink champagne (or Moscato)
2) Strawberries (hull the green leaves from the berries)
3) Pina colada mixer or melted ice cream (vanilla or strawberry)
Start by muddling the strawberries in a large bowl.
Then add in the pina colada mixer (or melted ice cream) and muddle again until pretty and pink.
The quick spin of a hand blender is a good way to break up any chunky hunks. Strawberry pieces are good, but keep ‘em on the smaller side. When well-muddled, you’ll end up with a mixture that looks like this.
Time to rim your glasses! Grab some pink sprinkles or Betty Crocker™ Candy Shop Decors Pink Rock Candy.
A little white chocolate melted into a small bowl… then dip the tops of your glasses into white chocolate and rim with pink candy. Allow the chocolate harden until ready to serve.
Just before serving, spoon several tablespoons of your muddled strawberry cream into the bottle of fluted champagne glasses.
Time for the bubbly! Top it all off with some champagne.
And serve! If your glasses are big enough, you can add a pretty pink straw. Or simply give to your guests let them sip to their hearts content.
This bubbly little sipper is sure to be a party time starlet. Serve and enjoy!
