Champagne Poached Strawberries with Rosewater

Sweet strawberries with fragrant rosewater – lovely on a summer night, and almost a cocktail in themselves. The colour and flavour suit festivities and a fun occasion, plus is so easy to make, and have reheated when you need it. Nice cold too.

"I love them because they are sweet, easy to make and contains bubbles!"– Katie Bryant.
