This post introduces Champagne into party beverage choices and I have written this post keeping non alcohol options in view.I had this in Canada when I was invited to a Christmas Party and fell in love with this instantly.I tried it with various aerated non alcoholic beverages as well and each time it was a different experience.
The best non alcoholic beverage to be used with this is Appy Fizz which is simply aerated Apple Juice. You can use other aerated beverages like Grapefruit,Lemon,Grape,Peach or Pineapple for best results.Those preferring Alcohol can use Champagne like me,White Wine,Rose Wine or Sherry with a touch of Soda if you want a little pep.A dash of Gin,Rum or Brandy can be added but will interfere with the taste of the Strawberries.
