prepare the strawberries
Clean the strawberries. Save six strawberries, and cut the rest into quarters. Add the cut strawberries to a bowl and add a tablespoon of sugar and lemon juice. Stir to combine, and set aside for 5 minutes for the strawberries to macerate. Mix the strawberries into a smooth mixture using a fork, a blender, or an immersion blender.
prepare the garnish
Melt the chocolate in a microwave or in a bowl above a pot of simmering water. Place the melted chocolate in a small bowl. Dip the top of the Champagne glass into the melted chocolate to get a beautiful chocolatey rim. Set aside for the chocolate to set. Coat the rest of the strawberries in a tablespoon of sugar.TipOptionally place the Champagne glasses in a fridge for a minute to set the chocolate faster.
Divide the strawberry mixture between six glasses. Add the Champagne. Decorate with sugar-coated strawberries and serve.
