Everyone Wins With This All-Star Strawberry Bellini

Gather your friends around the big screen and get your game face on: it’s every football’s favorite Sunday! During this all-American tradition (or what some may dub an honorary holiday), hosting a game-day party is half the fun—scratch that, it’s ALL the fun. Just picture platters filled with delectable finger foods and an ongoing clinking of glasses in honor of your favorite team. Imagine the crowd cheering and the diehard fans debating defense, all while you surreptitiously scout out the best tight end, ifyaknowwhatwemean.
 
Arguably best of all is the thrilling anticipation of who will win. In the spirit of that excitement, get ready to toast the champs (or sip your sorrows away) with our All-Star Strawberry Bellini made with Ménage à Trois Prosecco. So fresh and invigorating, you’ll want to enjoy this MVP mix from kickoff ’til the fourth quarter.
 
Cocktail Ingredients:
3 ounces Ménage à Trois Prosecco
1½ - 2 ounces strawberry puree
 
Strawberry Puree Ingredients:
1 lb (16 oz) frozen strawberries or 1 pint fresh strawberries
3 tbs honey or sugar
 
Directions for Strawberry Puree:
Wash and remove stems from fresh strawberries. If using frozen strawberries, thaw for 10 minutes. Place strawberries in a blender or food processor and emulsify until liquid consistency. Add honey or sugar to taste. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Directions for Cocktail:
In a champagne flute, pour approximately 1½ to 2 ounces of strawberry puree into bottom of glass. Top with 3 ounces of prosecco. Garnish with chocolate covered strawberry and enjoy!
 
Along with your cocktail, try serving Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Footballs. A treat that’s sweet no matter the score, this riff on the chocolate-covered strawberry is nothing short of game-day ready.
 
Ingredients for Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Footballs.
16 ounces semi-sweet chocolate (may use milk or dark chocolate if preferable)
16 ounces white chocolate
1 piping bag with small round tip
1 baking sheet lined with wax paper
 
Directions:
Wash and gently pat dry 1 pint of fresh strawberries. Side aside and line a baking sheet with wax paper. Melt semi-sweet chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl in 15 second intervals until chocolate is melted completely with a smooth consistency. Pull the leaves of the strawberry up and over the stem, then dip in chocolate to cover approximately ¾ of fruit. Set onto wax paper. Once all strawberries are covered in chocolate, refrigerate for 10 min to set chocolate. In a separate microwave safe bowl, melt white chocolate and fill piping bag. Remove strawberries from refrigerator cut a small slit down back of strawberry, closer to the tip, careful not to cut strawberry in half. Flip to the other side and pipe white chocolate to imitate laces on a football. Refrigerate to set.
