How to Make Pink Champagne Cheesecake
Set the oven to 375 degrees and use Pam to spray a 7-inch springform pan.
To make the crust
Put the cracker crumbs in a bowl and combine with melted butter until it forms into a wet sand-like mix.
Put the mixture into the prepared pan and use your hands to press gently into the bottom and up the sides about halfway.
Place in the oven and bake for about 10 minutes and then take out of the oven and place it aside.
To make the batter
Add the champagne into a small saucepan over medium heat and cook until it reduces in half. Do not let it boil. Take away from the heat and let it could down to room temperature.
Add the cream cheese, sugar, and flour into a large mixing bowl and use an electric mixer to whisk until combined.
One at a time, add in the eggs and mix until combined, and make sure not to over-whisk.
Add in the sour cream and champagne and use a spatula to mix in.
Cut the batter in two. Use a toothpick to add in a few drops of the pink gel to half the batter until it forms a pale color and makes sure not to overdo it.
Add in the white batter to the crust and then slowly add the pink batter in the center. The pink batter will move the white around a bit.
Hit the pan gently against your hand to flatten out and remove air bubbles. Place foil over top and seal the edges.
Add the water into the Instant Pot and put the trivet in, then put the cheesecake inside.
Seal the IP lid and switch the valve to seal. For 40 minutes, cook on “high” pressure.
Let the pressure release naturally for 15 minutes. Then, release the rest of the pressure quickly.
Place the cheesecake on a wire rack and cool until it reaches room temperature and use a paper towel to mop any excess moisture.
Use cling form to cover the cheesecake and then, place in the fridge for up to 6 hours or keep overnight for best results.
Place frosted grapes and mint leaves to decorate if desired and serve!
