Champagne Floats

|

Do I actually get to call this a recipe? Because… that feels like cheating. I mean, this Champagne Sorbet Float is amazing and delicious – definitely a must-try that I’m excited to share with you.

But a recipe? I’m not so sure about that…

No matter what you're celebrating, these champagne sorbet float cocktails are going to make it even better - a cute and bubbly cocktail that you can customize with your favourite flavour of sorbet

This is not the first time I’ve decided to have my dessert and cocktail at the same time – if anything, it’s kind of a running theme starting with this Grown-up Root Beer Float, then there was the Apple Pie a la Mode Cocktail… and yup, there’s a Bailey’s Coffee Float coming up soon, too.

But this pairing of slightly bittersweet raspberry sorbet with bubbly, dry champagne is definitely a class unto itself. It presents beautifully at a party and it just has that special something that can only come from a champagne cocktail.

Would you just look at how cute those bubbly champagne sorbet cocktails are?

This recipe would work beautifully with lemon sorbet or coconut or vanilla. I don’t usually like raspberry anything, my daughter picked out this sorbet flavor so I thought I’d give it a try – and I loved it. Use your favourite flavour for the best experience.

And of course, this recipe is best enjoyed shortly after making – when the froth and bubbles are fresh. I did sip on one a while after it was made and it was still delicious, but what’s the point in having a champagne float cocktail if you don’t get some bubbles tickling your lip as you sip?

Tip: I often order my liquor from Drizly because they have a quick delivery time (sometimes within 40 minutes) and no expensive mark-ups. Purchasing from them supports local retailers, too. You can order the Champagne needed for this recipe from them.
