1 bottle of Prosecco or sparkling white wine
1 (10-ounce/280g) can of whole cherries (not pie filling, but canned cherries)
a few sprigs of fresh thyme
Step 1: Drain the cherry juice into a saucepan. Put the cherries in a jar for later.
Step 2: Simmer the juice and thyme over low heat for about 5 minutes. Take off the heat and let cool.
Step 3: Pour the cooled juice over the cherries.
Step 4: Put about 1 to 2 Tablespoons of the cherry juice in the bottom of a champagne glass. Add one cherry to the glass. Pour the Prosecco over the cherries. Garnish with a small sprig of thyme. Squeeze a bit of lemon juice in each glass.
Tip: The lemon really sets the champagne off! Enjoy!
