FROM THE KITCHEN OF: Isabel Canfield
TOTAL TIME: 5 min to prep, 24 hrs to freeze
MAKES: as much as you cut!
Prosecco is fabulous Italian wine that I love to drink on a hot summer day or even for a special occasion, such as a baby shower. We served Processo instead of champagne during my sister’s baby shower for the main reason that it normally doesn’t give me a headache the next day. Unfortunately for me, I drank too much during the shower and got a headache. Apparently, I never learn. Haha. With the Prosecco though, we served orange juice so guests can make mimosas. I also provided these frozen strawberries as a way to keep the drink chill while you mingle with friends. It doesn’t water-down the cocktail and becomes a nice little treat to eat at the very end.
1 large container of fresh strawberries
1. Rinse and cut strawberries. Rinse the strawberries under cold water and pat them dry. Slice the small strawberries in half and quarter the larger strawberries. Arrange the cut strawberries in a single layer on paper towel.
2. Place in a freezer bag. Carefully place the strawberries with the paper towel in a zip lock freezer bag. Seal the bag tightly removing most of the air. Lay the sealed bag flat in the freezer overnight.
3. Add to drinks. Just before your party begins, take the bag out of the freezer and place the strawberries in a nice serving bowl or container. Guests can add the frozen strawberries to their champagne or Processco keeping their drink chill. Surprisingly, the strawberries keeps fairly frozen for a while just sitting out.
