It's berry time! Welcome the season with a recipe that transforms this juicy fruit from a simple snack into a satisfying drink.

Makes: 6 servings

Prep: 5 mins

  • 2 cups vodka, chilled
  • 1 1/2 pints strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • Limoncello
  • 1 750 milliliter bottle  sparkling wine, chilled
  • 6 sugar cubes
  1. In a large bowl, stir together the vodka, two-thirds of the sliced strawberries and the granulated sugar. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand at room temperature until the vodka turns pink, about 6 hours. Refrigerate overnight or up to 3 days.
  2. Strain the vodka and divide among 6 tall glasses. Add a splash of limoncello to each glass and top off with the sparkling wine. Drop in a sugar cube and garnish with the remaining strawberry slices.
