Does the Beauty Elixir get its name from strawberry’s complexion-boosting powers? Or is it that the world looks just a touch prettier after a few glasses of this champagne and gin cocktail? Whatever the case, this sunny drink is a lovely way to kick off the evening—or brighten up brunch. 

What You'll Need

  • 1 1/2 ounces gin
  • 1/2 ounce strawberry puree (or muddled fresh strawberries with a pinch of sugar)
  • 1/2 ounce lemon juice
  • 3 1/2 ounces champagne (or more as needed to fill your glass)
  • Garnish: strawberry and cucumber

How to Make It

  1. Combine gin, strawberries and lemon juice in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a glass.
  2. Top with Champagne.
  3. Garnish with strawberry or cucumber.
