Ingredients

  • 1 pound fresh or thawed frozen strawberries roughly chopped
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 inch piece of peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 bottle 750ml semi-dry champagne, sparkling wine, or 24 fluid ounces ginger ale

Instructions

  • In a medium saucepan, combine the strawberries, sugar, ginger and water water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  • Lower the heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the strawberries are broken down and softened, approximately 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Remove and discard the ginger. Pour mixture through a fine-mesh sieve or strainer, pressing on the solids to extract as much juice as you can.
  • Add the lemon juice and allow mixture to come to room temperature before placing in the refrigerator to chill.
  • Just before serving, add about 1 ounce each of the strawberry syrup to six champagne flutes.
  • Slowly fill each glass partially with the champagne. Once the champagne has stopped fizzing, continue to fill each glass to the top.

Notes

If stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator, the strawberry syrup will last up to a week in the refrigerator. However, once opened, champagne starts to lose its fizz within three days.
