Ingredients
  1. 2 lemons
  2. 1 (10-ounce) bag frozen strawberries
  3. 1½ cups water
  4. 1 cup sugar
  5. 2 (750-milliliter) bottles brut Champagne,* chilled
Instructions
  1. Using a vegetable peeler, remove rind from lemons, leaving behind as much white pith as possible. Cut lemons in half; squeeze juice to equal ¼ cup and reserve.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine lemon rind, frozen strawberries, 1½ cups water, and sugar. Bring to a low boil over medium heat, and cook for 20 minutes. As strawberries soften, mash with a potato masher. Into a bowl, pour mixture through a fine wire-mesh strainer, discarding solids. Cover and chill until cold.
  3. In a large pitcher, combine Champagne, strawberry syrup, and reserved lemon juice. Serve immediately.
Notes
  1. *Cava, prosecco, or another dry sparkling wine may be substituted.
