#FreshTastyValentines ~ Strawberry Champagne Cocktails



Welcome to #FreshTastyValentines day 4! Join us for a full week of wonderful recipes to inspire your fresh and tasty Valentine's Day meals. We are sponsored by some pretty amazing companies this year and will get to highlight some amazing products and ingredients thanks to their generosity. Please visit the Kick-Off post here to see the FANTASTIC giveaway information!



This is a quick and easy champagne cocktail that would be a perfect way to start and / or end your upcoming Valentine's Day festivities! You can prep the glasses with the strawberries and liquer well in advance of finalizing the drink, so it's a great one for make ahead.


I tried both Triple Sec and Grand Marnier as the orange liquers and they will yield very different results. The Triple Sec has a cleaner, more simplistic flavor, while the Grand Marnier yields more of a "mixed drink" flavor and has more depth. Both are very tasty options.


Make sure you have something delicious to eat alongside these beautiful, refreshing cocktails - or trust me they will go straight to your head! :)

Directions
  1. Place frozen strawberries in the bottom of each glass.
  2. Top with about 1 TBS orange liquer. Allow to thaw / marinate for 30 - 60 minutes.
