Strawberry & Lavender Honey Champagne Sauce

Strawberry & Lavender Honey Champagne Sauce
Serves: 8 Servings
This sauce is an obvious winner over a special Valentine’s Day choice of dessert. Strawberries are considered to be one of the most erotic of fruits due to their abundance of seeds and heart-like shape. Lavender is known as the "Herb of Love" due to its aphrodisiac scent - which is particularly alluring to men. Honey is said to promote testosterone production in men and estrogen use in women. The aphrodisiac and fertility-boosting properties of honey were the inspiration behind the word, "Honeymoon". And Champagne is simply the beverage of love and celebration. Enjoy!
  • 1 lb. Frozen Strawberries, unsweetened, thawed and drained (reserve liquid)
  • ¼ cup Honey (preferably lavender), or coconut nectar syrup
  • 1 tsp. Lavender, dried culinary grade buds, or ¼ tsp. lavender oil (essential oil)
  • ¼ cup Dry Champagne
  1. Thaw strawberries and reserve ¼ cup of the juices.
  2. Place strawberries, reserved liquid, honey and lavender in a blender. Puree until smooth.
  3. Pour blender mixture into a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer mixture until it is reduced by half (about 20 minutes). Remove from heat, strain and cool.
  4. To serve, stir in champagne and serve over the dessert of your choice.
