Wine Down Wednesday: May all your joys be pure joys and your pain, champagne.

It doesn’t get more classic than the champagne cocktail. Not only is this beverage perfect for a celebration, but also as a great happy hour option. Drinking champagne gives you that elegant, fancy, celebratory feel.
Here’s my favorite champagne cocktail recipe…
Simply The Best Strawberry Champagne Cocktail
1/2 cup fresh strawberries
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tsp sugar
Champagne or Sparkling Wine
Wash and hull the strawberries.
Put all the strawberries, except one, in a blender.
Add vanilla, lemon juice, and sugar, and puree.
Pour into a Champagne flute half-way (more or less to taste).
Top with Champagne or Sparkling Wine, and stir gently.
Slide the remaining strawberry onto edge of the glass.
