strawberry mint sparkling wine

let's have a cocktail, shall we? :)

3 cups sliced strawberries
1/2 cup loosely packed fresh mint leaves
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup agave nectar
1 (750-milliliter) bottle sparkling wine, chilled
  whole strawberries (optional)

recipe via


1. place first 5 ingredients in a blender; process until smooth (about 1 minute).

2. pour about 1/2 cup strawberry mixture into each of 6 glasses.
slowly pour about 1/2 cup wine into each glass; gently stir to combine.
garnish with whole berries, if desired.

3. enjoy!

(we enjoyed our with chocolate banana french toast)

i really loved this a lot. i love a chilled sparkling wine,
and then with the fresh mint and berries - so fruity and refreshing!

tip: when i let my drink sit for a while, all the berry seeds sunk to the bottom.
i'm thinking i would either use a strainer next time, or maybe mix up a big pitcher for pouring.
either way, i would definitely make this again. CHEERS! :)
