Drink & Dish: Strawberry Champagne Cocktail {with video}

On Tuesday I mentioned my recent obsession Chick Flicks. I don’t know what it is about those ridiculous romantic comedies that make me giddy – I always have been and probably always will be a hopeless romantic. My obvious favorite is the Notebook (ugh I tear up just thinking about Noah and Allie) and just recently enjoyed 27 Dresses and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days but right now I’m at a loss of which others I should re-watch before. So I want to hear from you guys! Gimme a little list: What are your favorite chick flicks?

Strawberry Champagne Cocktail | The Marvelous Misadventures of a Foodie

Continuing our talk of all things girly…today I bring to you our next episode of Drink & Dish with a Valentine’s Day theme! Ari whips up some Red Velvet Whoopie Pies – you can find her recipe over on her blog – and I make a Strawberry Champagne Cocktail:

I may or may not have over-flowed one of those champagne flutes in one of thpse clips haha. Oops! In the video I poured the champagne in last – but after a few more times making this I learned that it goes much smoother if you put the champagne in first :)

Strawberry Champagne Cocktail | The Marvelous Misadventures of a Foodie

This champagne cocktail is a pretty versatile little drink. It’s easy enough for guys to make and serve for their lovely lady, but could also be served at a party for a group of your girlfriends. You could make it for a romantic evening or just a casual brunch. So many possibilities!

What’s even better is that strawberry puree – whatever you don’t use in the drinks can be used for other things..like ice cream topping. I just mix some of the leftover puree with a few strawberry slices and pour it on top of a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Now you have a slam dunk drink and a backup dessert for later ;)

  1. This looks amazing. I love champagne and anything strawberry. I have only seen the Notebook 2 or 3 times I don’t like to cry. I love The Holiday, Because I Said So, How Do You Know, just to name a few.

  2. Great cocktail! I love ‘chick flicks’ also…they are so much better than ‘male tales’…as I call them!
    My all time fav chick flick is ‘Bridesmaids’…so funny!

  3. It looks like we both had champagne on the brain today! :)

    These looks so good and it is totally my kind of drink! As for chick flicks, I love You’ve Got Mail, It’s Complicated, Bridesmaids…so many, but those are the first that came to mind!

  4. So yum! The Proposal is always a good choice (shirtless Ryan Reynolds is never bad), Catch and Release, Dirty Dancing and Top Gun are also sure bets.
