It’s May, which means the strawberry plant outside of our back gate (aka the only plant I can keep alive) is poppin’ with juicy little nuggets, ready to be picked and turned into strawberry shortcake.
Ooooooooor… they could be made into a refreshingly fizzy champagne punch using this recipe from the gals at Laura Hooper Calligraphy. SMP Living seems to agree, as this shoot was featured on their blog.
Gather your ingredients:
- 1.5 bottles of chilled champagne or sparkling wine
- Two liters of ginger ale
- Heaps of fresh strawberries (maybe two or three pints?), or two bags of frozen strawberries
Mix and stir.
Bam! Strawberry champagne punch!
And brides, this punch is the perfect ‘getting ready on your wedding day’ alternative to mimosas. Especially if you pick up some cute “Best day ever!” napkins from Laura Hooper Calligraphy. Your bridesmaids will be super stoked, I promise!
