Fragonard ......

.... the Vernal Equinox and a cocktail.

I'm enjoying a short vacation at home and somehow I just noticed it's Spring. So, rather than post a picture of new growth I thought a new birth might be more appropriate, especially when its by one of my favorite 18th century painters, Jean-Honore Fragonard. 

Also, it gives me an opportunity to give another Friday cocktail .... 

a Fragonard

1 bottle sparkling white wine
1 pint strawberries, pureed
2 tablespoons creme de fraise

for 6

As Nigella, from whose book Forever Summer this comes, says "Think Bellini, only with pureed strawberries." In Italy, apparently, this drink is known as a Rossini.
