I am a big fan of whiskey. That’s usually my spirit of choice. The problem with whiskey, though, is that it always seems so heavy.
Well, never fear! We’ve lightened up the traditional whiskey drink, and made it celebratory, with the addition of champagne and strawberries.
This champagne cocktail mashes the best of both worlds. The champagne brings a lightness and a special feeling to the whiskey. The whiskey brings those delicious deep notes to the champagne, and makes it feel richer. And strawberries? Well, they pair beautifully with both champagne and bringing out the sweetness of the bourbon.
This drink is perfect for any time of the year. It makes a perfect summer cocktail, when strawberries are bountiful. This would be so glamorous at a wedding, and since it’s so easy, a perfect DIY wedding cocktail. And you can’t forget Valentine’s Day, where this drink would elevate everything a notch or two.
