 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2 1/2   c            Champagne
    1 3/4   c            Granulated sugar
    2       c            Water
      1/4   c            Lemon juice
      1/4   c            Orange juice
      3/4   c            Wild strawberries
                         -OR- strawberry slices
 
   Bring three-quarters of the champagne to a boil in a
   saucepan. Remove from heat and let cool.
   
   Combine the sugar and water in a pan and stir to
   dissolve sugar. Bring mixture to a boil, and let cook
   20 minutes, stirring frequently, until syrup forms a
   thread when pulled between your thumb and forefinger.
   Remove from heat immediately.
   
   Stir champagne and fruit juices into the sugar syrup;
   cool.
   
   Freeze mixture in a plastic container until hard,
   several hours or overnight.
   
   In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat sorbet until
   smooth.  Return sorbet to freezer until firm.
   
   Serve scoops of sorbet on chilled plates or in
   glasses, garnished with wild strawberries or
   strawberry slices.
