What is better than Strawberries and Mint Champagne on July 4th?

I tend to not do much on this particular holiday. I can't tell you the last time I ventured out into the crowds and the traffic to watch a firework display. This year, I think I will read and sip on this drink.....

Strawberry and Mint Champagne
1 lb fresh local strawberries
10 mint leaves
1 bottle champagne or sparkling white wine,
I am fond of Dibon Brut NV Cava from Cataluña region of Spain.

Puree the strawberries and mint leaves in a food processor.
Strain through a fine sieve into a bowl. Half fill a glass with the mixture and top up with champagne.
Decorate with a sprig of mint.
