Valentine’s Day: Strawberries and Champagne Margarita

Valentine's Day Margarita - Strawberries & Champagne Margarita! Pizzazzerie.com

You read it right. Strawberries and Champagne = Margarita of my Valentine’s loving dreams. I don’t know why I never thought of it before really, I think I thought you couldn’t add something like champagne to an already-alcoholic cocktail. But wait, who sets these rules? Cupid said I could do it so behold — my new fave margarita, just in time for February 14th! Or…any day of the year. I whipped these babies up in less than 5 minutes which is how cocktails should be. Easy, no fuss, and oh so delicious.

The idea for a Valentine’s themed margarita hit me when I happened upon some rose tinted margarita glasses in my stash of party supplies. They have the slightest hint of pink, and I love them! I rimmed the edges in pink sugar crystals and the sweetness of the sugar pairs perfectly with this margarita. It’s not a super-sweet one (you could add simple syrup to make it sweeter). It has just the right amount of tartness. Sometimes when I order a regular strawberry margarita, it’s so full of sugar that it’s almost too sweet. The dry champagne and strawberry puree is the perfect combo¬†and the touch of the sweetness on the rim is all you need!
