Combine a fine Champagne and a great vodka (like Stoli) with strawberries and you have a fantastic drink called the Accomplice. This is a great cocktail for elite celebrations and, especially, New Year's Eve parties. I like that it's served in a cocktail glass as opposed to a Champagne flute because it allows the bubbly to swell in the wider glass. Not to mention it's much easier to rim a cocktail glass with sugar, which is a necessary finishing touch for this and works best with a ​brut or extra brut for that sweet-dry combination that is stunning.

Ingredients

  • 3 strawberries
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup
  • 2 ounces vodka (Stolichnaya)
  • 1/2 ounce lemon juice (fresh)
  • 3 ounces Champagne
  • Garnish: superfine sugar for the rim

Steps to Make It

  1. Muddle three strawberries and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker.

  2. Add the vodka and lemon juice.

  3. Strain into a sugar-rimmed martini glass.

  4. Top with Champagne.
