Champagne Raspberry Lemonade

This is based off an old pink lemonade recipe. We like to use Ariel dealcoholized champagne so all can enjoy it. But you can also make it with regular champagne, and even pink champagne or Spumanti. Sparkling apple cider would work also, but the flavor would be different. Even sparkling Perrier water would be good in this. Just be sure to use something with "bubbles."
