Raspberry and Champagne Crush-Thirsty Thursday

This sparkling fruity crush is so easy, it will become your go to drink for brunch or any celebration you choose. Pureed and seeded raspberries, champagne, Prosecco or any sparkling wine along with a good Cognac make up this simple elegant libation. Blackberries would be delicious, too. Similar to a Buck’s Fizz (orange juice and champagne) named after the London Buck’s Club where it was invented as an excuse to begin drinking early.

8 ounces champagne or sparkling wine, chilled

Puree the raspberries in a food processor. Push the puree through a sieve and then add the sugar, to taste. Pour the cognac into two glasses. Return the raspberry puree to the food processor, add the champagne or sparkling wine and blend briefly. Pour into glasses and serve immediately.
