12 Months of Drinks: Glitzy Strawberry Champagne Drink

Hero_650
I thought I would share a holiday drink with you this month for 12 Months of Drinks and this Glitzy Strawberry Champagne drink will definitely be a winner! The strawberry puree added to this bubbly champagne drink makes it a popular holiday drink! And, a holiday drink isn't complete without these glitzy golden sugar crystals added to its rim!

Of course, every fancy holiday drink needs something sweet to go with it! I added a tray of these delicious champagne strawberries and sea salted caramels from Shari's Berries. My favorite part is that the strawberries have the same gold sugar crystals on them as the rims of the champagne drink!
