What do you do when the man you love; the man you’ve spent the last 7 (very happy) years with; the man you moved to the other side of the planet to be with; asks you to marry him?
You say yes.
And you celebrate with many many sparkles, strawberries, sorbet and smiles.
Champagne and Strawberry celebration sorbet
Serves 6, so you can celebrate with family and friends.
750 g fresh strawberries
75 g caster sugar
175 ml champagne
2 tsp egg white
In a blender purée the strawberries, sugar and champagne. Taste to check the sweetness and add a little more sugar if you’d like. You could sieve this mixture to remove the seeds, but I prefer them in. Pour into a dish, cover and freeze for about 8 hours. Then whizz it up again in a blender with the lightly whisked egg white. Put the mixture back in the dish and freeze again. For a non-alcoholic sorbet, you might want to go through another whizz and freeze cycle, however the champagne in this stops the sorbet from freezing too much or forming too many crystals.
Serve with a glass of bubbles and enjoy with your loved ones.
