Strawberry Champagne cocktail

If you love a gorgeous bubbly drink with plenty of fruity flavor, the Strawberry Champagne cocktail is going to be right up your alley. Simple to prepare and even easier to sip, this elegant drink adds a hint of sophistication to just about any occasion. 

The history of strawberries and Champagne

Strawberries and Champagne are so often served together that it could seem that this tasty pair has a bit of romantic history.  

The humble strawberry often stood as a symbol for Venus, the Roman goddess of love, because of its heart shape, deep red color and purported aphrodisiac qualities. Bubbly, of course, is also closely associated with all things romantic since it’s so often popped at weddings, proposals, and other loved-up occasions.  

However, the true beauty of this pairing is that they just taste simply wonderful when enjoyed together. The effervescence of the Champagne teases out the sweetness and tart notes from the strawberry, which combines in the most delightful way.

Top tips & tricks

Make sure your ingredients are nice and cold

Take your time to shake up the vodka with the crushed ice to get it perfectly frosty. Also, ensure that your Champagne is chilled before you pop it to charge the glasses. This way you will be able to pour a delightfully refreshing drink.  

If you want to make the bubbles last, use a flute

2 Ingredient Champagne cocktails like these can be served in martini glasses or flutes. Many Champagne purists will tell you that the bouquet of these wines is best enjoyed in a glass with more surface exposure such as the martini glass. However, if you want the bubbles to last to provide some visual spectacle, a flute is your best bet.  

If you are wary of popping the bottle, use a kitchen towel

Opening a Champagne bottle can be something tricky and a little daunting if you aren’t used to doing so. To make things simpler, use a kitchen towel. Holding the bottle in your non-dominant hand, untwist the tie in the wire that keeps the cork in place. Without removing the wire, place the towel over the top of the bottle, grip it tightly with your dominant hand, and gently wiggle the cork and loose wire top from side to side until the cork pops out. Using the towel gives you a little more grip and control.  

Perfect occasions to serve the Strawberry Champagne cocktail

  • Weddings. The best Champagne cocktails tend to be served as welcome drinks at weddings. 
  • Garden parties. A summery garden party calls for a happy, sparkly drink like the Strawberry Champagne cocktail, which also happens to be super photogenic.  
  • Birthday celebrations. Every birthday needs some bubbly, and with this recipe, you can add a little something extra that makes it all the more special. 


Strawberries become prettily iridescent in a glass of Champagne, while also adding a rich, appealing color and a sweet flavor that plays beautifully against the dryness of the bubbly.  

We love using a brut, or dry, Champagne when pairing with strawberries. This way, the depth of flavor of the drink is enhanced thanks to the interplay between the dry and sweet components.  

Champagne and orange juice are a brunchtime staple because a Mimosa adds a refreshing bit of zest to the morning drinks line-up.
