Food Pairing: Piper-Heidsieck Champagne & Raspberry Popsicles!

It is always good times when champagne is involved. Whether you are celebrating your wedding, a birthday, or you just feel like having a glass for no specific reason on a Sunday afternoon. Champagne is more versatile than any other wine and goes well with a wide array of foods including appetizers, opening courses, light meals and of course – desserts.
This weekend, I did a food pairing exercise with the Piper-Heidsieck Rosé Sauvage champagne and as you may imagine, I enjoyed it dearly. On a hot day like yesterday, I could not think of pairing this lively and generous wine with anything else but a delicate raspberry ice cream and if I may say so myself, it was a big hit. Of course, food pairing is an individual choice and every person’s sense is different but the red fruit flavors of the champagne went really well with my creamy raspberry popsicles. And as you can see, the two were color-coordinated as well. A tasty combination that’s easy on the eye!

Ingredients
500g raspberries
200ml water
100ml whipping (soy) cream
100ml agave syrup

Method
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Divide between popsicle moulds or shot glasses. Freeze for at least 5hours. Enjoy with the champagne.

Cheers!

    Absolutely! You can use honey, stevia sweetener and of course you can also use sugar. :)

    marta! that’s ah-mazing! I love the pink color of the ice cream and the champagne! I’m getting the champagne and making the ice cream next weekend!

    Great. I will use maple sirup. If it will be not sweet enough next time I will add sugar too. I have stevia only in flowerpot, so I need to dry leaves, and use as swetener. :)
