These Drunken Rosé Strawberries are addictive, easy and SO delicious and taste like an adult, grown-up version of alcohol-soaked gummies. Crisp and fruity rosé wine soaks each juicy berry for a refreshing and light treat.

2lbsfresh, ripe strawberrieswashed and patted dry
1(750ml) bottle sparkling rosé winecan also use champagne, prosecco or sparkling Moscato
Place the freshly washed strawberries into a large bowl. Pour the sparkling rosé wine over the strawberries in the bowl and tamp any strawberries down so they're all submerged or mostly submerged. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, up to 3 hours.
Drain the wine out of the bowl of strawberries. Use a paper towel to gently blot some of the moisture from the strawberries, then dip each tacky strawberry into a small bowl filled with the coarse sparkling sugar and press to coat it completely. Place the coated sparkling strawberry on a lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining strawberries.
Serve immediately, or store leftovers covered in the fridge up to 1 day.
You can use any sparkling wine, such as champagne, prosecco, rosé or Moscato for this recipe. I just thought rosé was perfect with strawberries.
