Picture Perfect New Years’ Cocktail

I love, love, love bubbles!  Anything with champagne in it is always a win in my book.  berries & bubbles is super easy to make and only requires a few ingredients.  Even better; right?!

Start 2018 off the right way and cheers with this delish drink.  Bonus: you can completely customize this drink by swapping out the fruit and sorbet flavors.

How too 

using an eight ounce champagne flute add:

  • 1 whole frozen strawberry
