  • 2 pounds fresh strawberries
  • 1 bottle of bubbly wine (champagne, prosecco, cava or sparkling rosé)
  • ½ cup organic cane sugar


  1. Rinse and drain strawberries, then pour them into a large bowl or container.
  2. Pour the bubbly wine over the strawberries, adding enough so that they’re submerged. Cover and let the strawberries soak in the fridge for at least 1 hour, or overnight.
  3. Pour cane sugar into a bowl or onto a plate.
  4. Remove the strawberries from the fridge. One by one, pat the strawberries dry, coat in the organic cane sugar, and place on a serving plate.
  5. Enjoy immediately! The berries will get soggy if they sit for a couple of hours.

Recipe Notes

To freeze: after making all of the strawberries, add them to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Place the baking sheet in the freezer for a few hours until the strawberries are frozen solid. Once the strawberries are frozen, feel free to transfer them to a freezer-friendly bag or container for up to 3 months.
