The nerd is strong in me today so you’ll just have to excuse the crazy. Not that this crazy is anything new to you, my lovely friends who I appreciate so much (please don’t run away screaming!).

A Strawberry Rhubarb Champagne Cocktail is the one cocktail I imagine downing with all my friends at brunch quite happily. The lovely pink color and the fruity strawberry rhubarb simple syrup give the bubbly champagne a whole new life. Each glass makes you feel like spring has sprung right inside that glass, filling your belly with a tingling feeling (both from the bubbles and the booze, haha).

Plus this cocktail is SO spring and SO Easter brunch. Just try pairing it with some deviled eggs and you’ll totally get what I mean.

I mean, when you are sipping on one of these, dealing with the family on Easter will be infinitely easier.

Giggle juice (aka champagne) always makes the world a little more rosy, am I right?
