Matt and I had a ton of champagne left from our wedding, and so I decided to do something fun with it!
We’re not big champagne drinkers, and have had way too many mimosas trying to drink down our champagne stash, so a fruit salad champagne treat sounded like a delicious way to mix it up.
Most recipes that I found called for all kinds of crazy things, like fruit purees, gin, beer, you name it! But I wanted to keep it simple…
So, I gathered up all the fruit I had on hand, and dusted it with finely ground sugar. I added it to the champagne with a little bit of simple syrup, and voila!, an amazingly yummy champagne fruit salad!
Time: 5 minutes
Makes: 4 glasses
1 bottle of champagne
2 cups fruit, cut up (I used blueberries, strawberries, and peaches)
1 tbsp finely ground sugar
¼ cup simple syrup
1. Dust Fruit with sugar
2. Place fruit in bowl and cover with simple syrup.
3. Spoon fruit and 1 tablespoon syrup into each of the champagne glasses. Top off with champagne and garnish with slice of fruit if desired.
