This Strawberry Champagne Zipzicle Cocktail recipe is pretty far up on my list of “most loved blog recipes”. I developed this recipe for an innovative popsicle company that makes BPA free zipper pouches to create your own popsicle flavors. >>> Zipzicle <<<
The idea for this recipe came from the most popular Champagne Cocktail that I served at Hyde Beach (SLS Hotel) & Hyde (AAA Arena) in Miami. This recipe tastes exactly like it, only colder and fizzier! Which is exactly how I like my champagne cocktails!
You simply drop the vodka and strawberry Zipzicle into a glass of bubbles and stir gently. The fresh fruit melts into the glass and makes an amazing cocktail.
This makes a beautiful display for a cocktail bar setup for a bridal or baby shower. It is simple and easy to put together well in advance so it is easy to serve at an event. 🙂
If we still lived in Florida, this be a perfect boat day drink. Cheers!
One of my personal favorites is: Lavender Lemonade Zipzicles.
Serves 6 pops
Mrs. Jennifer Irizarry
- 1 bottle of Champagne, sparkling wine or Prosecco
- 1 lb fresh or frozen strawberries
- ½ cup sugar
- Juice from 1 large lemon
- ¼ cup vodka
- ½ cup filtered water
- Combine water and sugar in a medium pot and bring to a gentle simmer, stirring until sugar dissolves.
- Add strawberries to pot and continue to simmer on medium for about 5 minutes. Once the strawberries start to break down and the water is thick and red they are done.
- Remove pot from heat and let cool for 10 minutes.
- In a blender combine strawberry mixture, lemon juice and vodka. Blend for about a minute.
- Using a funnel, fill Zipzicle pouches to the fill line and freeze.
- Once the pops are frozen, pour a glass of champagne ¾ way full. Add a Zipzicles to each champagne glass. Let the strawberry cocktail melt a little in the glass to create a champagne cocktail. Stir gently, top off with champagne and enjoy!

** This recipe doubles perfectly.
* This cocktail recipe is balanced to perfection. BUT- if you prefer to have a stronger cocktail you can increase the vodka to a ½ cup. However, you will have a strawberry mixture little left over. It would be like a double shot of vodka in addition to the glass of champagne.
