Champagne Strawberry Sorbet

Feeling in a festive mood (and trying to finish off the four pounds of strawberries on my hands), I came up with this pretty pink creation. I think it would be great to add it to a Champagne flute with a splash of some bubbly. This sorbet is boozy and crisp with sweet strawberry tang.

Gotta love strawberry season.

Soak the strawberries in Champagne so that they absorb the flavor. The alcohol will help prevent the strawberries from becoming too hard when frozen.


1 cup chopped strawberries
3 cups Champagne
1 cup water
2/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

Several hours in advance, chop up the strawberries and soak them in a bowl with 1 cup Champagne. (I only soaked them for an hour and it wasn't long enough. I think you could even soak them in the refrigerator over night if you wanted.) After strawberries are adequately soaked, strain them and set them aside. Heat remaining Champagne, water, sugar, and lemon in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cool liquid in refrigerator or ice bath. Once liquid is chilled, pour in ice cream maker and churn. Once sorbet has thickened add in strawberries and churn for an additional minute.


  1. Can't wait to try it!

  2. Absolutely delicious--I thought the champagne tasted great.

    Word to the wise: if you soak the strawberries too long in the champagne they will lose their color, so maybe you could do half and half (part for a long time, which will color the champagne, and part for a short time, which will keep the strawberries soft yet preserve their color).


  4. Did you include the champagne soaking liquid in the "heat remaining champagne" part, or just discard it and use the 2 remaining cups?

  5. Use one cup of Champagne to soak the strawberries and then discard it. Heat the remaining two cups with the water, sugar, etc. Hope that helps!
