The original version of this cocktail hails from Harry's Bar in Venice. Our rendition substitutes strawberries for the traditional peaches. You can prepare the strawberry base up to one day ahead. Make sure to give it another spin in the blender just before mixing the cocktails.
6 cups sliced strawberries
1/4 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons brandy
3 cups prosecco or other sparkling wine
6 large strawberries
How to Make It
Combine first 3 ingredients in a blender. Let stand 10 minutes. Process until smooth; chill.
Place 1/4 cup strawberry mixture in each of 6 glasses. Add 1/2 cup prosecco to each serving, and stir to blend. Garnish each serving with 1 large strawberry.
We have made this recipe several times over the past year and a half - often serving it to guests. It is a light, pleasant drink and very festive. We serve it in champagne flutes, which helps contain the bubbles.
Made to directions, very pretty served in large martini glasses instead of flutes. BUT I should have forced the fruit puree through a sieve to remove the seeds. Otherwise, the flavor was nice and light.
