Simple Syrup:

Cook 2 cups sugar with 1 cup water in a saucepan over medium heat until the sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Cool completely.


Champagne or sparkling wine


To Assemble:

Pour 1/4-1/2 of the the fruit puree into a flute glass, and top off with your champagne or sparkling wine. Garnish with the fresh version of the fruit you pureed.

love to make a varied fresh assortment of fruit purees and keep them in a mason jar in the fridge, along with some champagne or sparkling wine. 

Use frozen fruits: blueberries, strawberries, peach, or a combination. Simply thaw a 16-ounce bag of your favorite fruit, puree in a blender with 1/2 cup of the simple syrup. Pour into your mason jars or straight into your champagne or sparkling wine. Garnish with the the fresh fruit you pureed.

 

Gift Idea:

This makes a wonderful gift basket idea. Snuggle some champagne in with two flute glasses, your fresh, fruit purees, some beautiful dish towels into a basket and your friend will be able to celebrate anytime!

 

Cheers to 2011, friends!
