Strawberry Prosecco Punch

August 9, 2013
 Is there anyone else out there that needs to spend at least 20 minutes scrolling through Facebook before you can begin doing anything constructive? 


Just me? Thought so.

Okay….so, how about this one? How many of you like to have a nice bubbly cocktail on a Friday after noon? Let me be clear I said after noon, not afternoon. This means like around 12:15 or so.

There we go, now I see the hands going up.

 

Strawberry Prosecco Punch

 Well, I have a very special drinky-poo for you. It’s a little sweet, a little sparkly, and utterly refreshing. You do have to plan ahead with the strawberry syrup and all, but the rewards are worth it. This drink is a workhorse—perfect for anernersary, brunch, or simply an excuse for popping open a bottle of prosecco…. Did somebody say celebrate?



Strawberry Prosecco Punch

Yield: 1 Cup of Syrup and 8 Drinks

Ingredients

    For the Syrup:
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 pound strawberries, hulled and chopped
  • For the Drink:
  • 1/4 cup chilled strawberry syrup
  • 2 tablespoons Peychaud's bitters
  • 1 750ml bottle chilled prosecco
  • Sliced strawberries for garnish (optional)

Instructions

    For the Syrup:
  1. Combine sugar and water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Cook about 10 minutes until syrup has thickened slightly. Add strawberries and cook another 5 minutes or until strawberries are broken down and syrup is fragrant.
  2. Let strawberries cool in the syrup then strain mixture into a bowl. Let syrup cool completely before using. Save strawberries and eat as jam. *Syrup will keep covered in the refrigerator for 3 weeks.
  3. For the Drink:
  4. Combine all ingredients in a pitcher or punch bowl and serve in chilled glasses. If you'd like to make individual drinks, pour about 2 teaspoons strawberry syrup in the bottom of a champagne flute. Add 2-3 shakes bitters then top with prosecco.
