Champagne and Raspberry Dip

February 6, 2019

Each bite is like a delightful sip of a Kir Royale. Serve this dip next to a bowl of fresh strawberries and a glass of Champagne for an excellent wedding, bridal shower, or Valentine's Day dessert offering.

Ingredients Makes about 11⁄2 cups (375 mL)

1⁄2 cup Champagne or Prosecco 125 mL
1 tbsp granulated sugar 15 mL
1⁄2 cup golden or red raspberries 125 mL
1 tsp apricot jam 5 mL
1 fresh basil leaf 1
1⁄2 cup whipped cream 125 mL


  1. In a saucepan, bring Champagne and sugar to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat and boil gently until reduced by three-quarters, about 5 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat. Add raspberries, jam and basil leaf. Transfer to a blender or use an immersion blender and purée until smooth. Let cool to room temperature.
  3. Fold whipped cream, one-third at a time, into raspberry mixture and serve immediately.
