The Champagne Bowler is a rather vineal cocktail as three of its five ingredients are based on the grape.

It is a wine cocktail that dates to at least the 1930's and 40's and uses both a white wine (e.g. a Chardonnay) and Cognac topped with a sparkling wine, but there is another fruit that lays in the background for a fresh twist. It is a mash of sweetened strawberries that make the Bowler fantastic, and because it is served without straining, the drinker gets the full effect of the berries.
