My friend Workout Queen asked me what she could do with with some Grey Goose, seltzer, strawberries and cranberry juice. I walked her through the strawberry simple syrup process and it reminded me about doing the same thing with champagne. The idea behind her drink with vodka is to flavor the seltzer with the syrup and add vodka to taste. My drink is simply adding a nice refreshing strawberry flavor to your bubbly. I dont suggest doing this to Moet or anything bottle over $40 unless you find it to be very dry and tasteless. This recipe will do wonders for your cheap bubbly and anything that is a bit 2 dry for all day consumption. The simple syrup recipe is can be flavored with any fruit and is great for summer time champagne drinking :-)!! I hope you enjoy.

Strawberry simple syrup
  • Boil down 1 cup of water 2 cups sugar and 1 cup of diced strawberries until it is at least half the volume it started with. The more you boil down the more concentrated the sweetness. Dont boil down 2 much or you will end up with candy....you need water in it.
  • cool in fridge and use with your favorite drinks. If you make a thick one it can be drizzled over food.
