You’re going to love these champagne-infused drunken strawberries for their exquisite blend of sparkling wine and sweet fruit. This recipe creates a decadent sensation that's both elegant and indulgent, perfect for celebrating any of life's special moments.
I originally made these for Valentine’s Day, but they’d be a cute addition to any special occasion like a wedding shower spread, Mother's Day, New Years Eve, a birthday party, or just a girls night in!
The recipe is super simple, too. The strawberries get soaked in your favorite champagne, and then are rolled in sugar for a finishing touch. They look and taste so elegant, but minimal effort is required!
- Fresh Strawberries - Look for ones with large stems. It makes dipping them and enjoying them easier!
- Bubbly - I used Lamarca Prosecco, but any bottle of champagne will do.
- Sugar - To coat our berries in.
See the recipe card below for a full list of ingredients and measurements.
Substitutions and Variations
- Ramp up the booze! Replace ½ cup of the champagne with plain or a fruit-flavored vodka or rum. You could also use your favorite white wine instead of champagne.
- Try another fruit like watermelon or raspberries.
- Decorate your champagne-soaked strawberries with different colored crystalized sprinkles instead of plain white sugar. You could also drizzle with a little melted chocolate chips (dark chocolate or white chocolate) if you want to cross this recipe with a chocolate-covered strawberries recipe.
How to Make This Recipe
1. Wash the strawberries thoroughly. Fill a mixing bowl with water and some baking soda, place the strawberries in the bowl for 20 minutes. Then drain and rinse.
2. Use a toothpick to poke a hole or two into each strawberry. I like to do this because it helps the champagne soak into the berry.
3. Add the strawberries into a clean bowl (something that can fit into your fridge) and pour champagne into the bowl. Cover the bowl and let soak in the fridge for 3-4 hours.
4. Remove the berries from the champagne and gently pat the outside dry. Dip into a bowl of sugar and then place on a serving tray. ENJOY!!
Store your berries in an airtight container for up to three days. Do note that the longer they sit, the more the sugar will seem to disappear, but really it’s just soaking into the strawberry as it releases moisture. This may also result in a little strawberry syrup leaking out the next day, but it still tastes delicious!
You can also freeze these infused berries for up to 3 months!
