Strawberries with Champagne Ice Recipe


Strawberries with Champagne Ice 

2 medium oranges
1 medium lemon
1-1/2 cups water
3/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons orange-flavored liqueur
2 cups champagne
2 cups fresh strawberries
1 cup champagne
1 tablespoon sugar

With a vegetable peeler, peel zest in strips from oranges and lemon. Squeeze juice from oranges and lemon.

In a large saucepan, combine water, 3/4 cup sugar, and citrus zest. Bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat; boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Discard zest. Pour liquid into a large bowl and stir in orange and lemon juices and liqueur. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.

Stir 2 cups champagne into juice mixture.

Pour into 8-inch square pan and freeze until slushy, 2-1/2 to 3 hours. Beat juice mixture in a mixing bowl or process in a food processor or blender until smooth.

Pour back into pan and refreeze for 2 to 3 hours, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, hull strawberries and cut in half. Put in a medium bowl and stir in 1 cup champagne and 1 tablespoon sugar. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Place strawberries in goblets and fill with champagne ice.

Yield: 14 - 1/2 cup servings
