Frozen strawberry sweetness meets bubbly in a fancy summer cocktail. A sliver of Serrano provides a hint of heat while one basil leaf adds a hint sophistication. Choose your favorite prosecco, champagne, or moscato (if you like sweet) to cater the drink to your pallet. I chose a semi-sweet bubbly Rose.
2 cups of frozen strawberries
Juice of 1 lemon
1 shot of Triple Sec
1 tsp of vanilla extract
1 basil leaf
1 tsp of agave or honey
1 slice of Serrano pepper (or more of you like spicy)
1 bottle of bubbly Rose
Place all of the ingredients minus the Rose into a blender. Blend on high until smooth.
Add 1/4 cup of frozen mixture to each glass (serves 4 large or 6 small).
Fill the remaining glass with Rose or Prosecco. Garnish with fresh strawberries.
