Champagne Royale Recipe

Recipe by: Paula Deen’s
Ingredients: serve 10 to 12
2 lemons
1 (10 ounce) bag frozen strawberries
1 ½ cup water
1 cup sugar
2 (750 mililiter) bottles brut champagne, chilled

  • Using a vegetable peeler, remove rind from lemions, leaving behind as much white pith as possible. Cut lemons in half; squeeze juice to equal ¼ cup and reserve.
  • In a medium saucepan, combine lemon rind, frozen straberries, 1 ½ cups water, and sugar. Bring to a low boil over medium heat, and cook for 20 minutes. As strawberries soften, mash with a potato masher. Into a bowl, pour mixture through a fine wire mesh straner, discarding solids. Cover and chill until cold.
  • In a large pitcher, combine champagne, straberry syrup, and reserved lemon juice. Serve immediately.
Note: Cava, prosecco or another dry sparkling wine may be substituted.
