Raspberries – a box or two will suffice. Fresh is better than frozen!

1) Place 1-3 raspberries or half-sliced strawberries in the glass prior to pouring.
2) Open your favorite bottle of Champagne (we chose Champagne Taittinger Brut La Française NV) and enjoy!

What’s not to love about the options available to you? You could switch out the raspberries and substitute blackberries or strawberries, maybe even some kiwi and pineapple. Also don’t forget that there are liqueurs with the fruit flavor that you can use as a float on top too.
