It all starts with a strawberry.

Well, a few of them. Blend them up with a little bit of fresh orange juice.

Not just any juice, though. Blood orange juice.

Blood oranges are a lovely, romantic little member of the citrus family, perfectly available just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Mix in a bit of blood orange Spiked Soda (if it’s available in your state,) or strawberry or orange liqueur, and then go to town with the champagne.

The bubbly is even bubblier than usual in this drink, thanks to the acid in the soda. It’s fun to watch it overflow, but don’t waste it!

Those precious bubbles deserve a better tribute.

Can we talk about how perfect this drink is for Valentine’s Day? Pair it with some Tomato & Eggs Florentine, Strawberry Hazelnut Cream Croissants, and a batch of Easy Chocolate Fondue, and you have a brunch that will make your sweetie fall in love with you all over again!
