Agave nectar is great for dishes like this, where it dissolves instantly. A chilled bowl and beaters will help the cream whip faster.

  • 1/2 cup Champagne or other sparkling wine
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange rind
  • 1 (16-ounce) package fresh strawberries, halved
  • 2 (6-ounce) packages fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
