Strawberry Champagne Cocktail

From the looks of this picture you might think I enjoyed this drink on a nice summer day. I actually made this on Saturday, we had super nice weather and temperatures around 70 degrees in Iowa. Oh but don't you worry, yesterday was cold and rainy. As in 30 degrees cold....that's just how we roll in the Midwest.

We had plans with my side of the family Saturday afternoon and evening. My mom, brother's girlfriend and I got together to do some pie making. It's really come to be an annual thing, we get a bunch of apples from a local orchard and spend an afternoon making up as many pies as our poor hands can handle and then stash them into the freezer to enjoy on Thanksgiving and throughout the winter. I promise I'll post more about this in the near future!

After we were done with the pies, we ate a dinner made up of a bunch of different appetizers we all brought along. I made up this drink for us to enjoy because let me tell you, after hand mixing pie dough for 3 1/2 hours I think I deserved one.

This would be a great drink to enjoy throughout the summer of course, but why stop there? What about your holiday parties coming up? Frozen strawberries are readily available at all times. If you don't like chunks of fruit in your drink, you can puree the strawberries and mix into the pitcher. Raspberries would be great as well.
