10 Strawberries & Cream and Champagne-inspired cocktails to watch with Wimbledon

It’s that time of the year again! Those two weeks when all eyes in the sporting world turn to the suburbs of southwest London to watch the world’s top tennis players spar for the Grand Slam title.

Here are 10 strawberries and cream and champagne-inspired cocktails to quench your thirst and help you root on your favourite tennis champs.
