Raspberry champagne floats

Posted by

Well, with some leftover champagne after the new year celebrations, all I was dreaming was floats. Raspberry sorbet adds the perfect sweetness and tartness to this cocktail. I wanted the gorgeous shade of pink, and it looks incredible on your cocktail table. If you feel lazy, you may skip the dessert and serve these to your guests (just between you and me). Pile up scoops of sorbet in a tall glass or one big helping in a serving glass and pour champagne before serving. It adds a lot of drama. 

You can play with different fruits and colors. Pineapple, peach, mixed berries, etc., work pretty well too. 

Just a handful of pantry essentials to get this deliciously fruity cocktail ready. The best part is that you can prepare the sorbet in less than 5 minutes.

So here it is, the world’s most leisurely dessert/ cocktail. Let the celebrations continue.
