A stately yet fizzy cocktail with raspberry sorbet and pink bubbly champagne.
With New Year’s Eve just a few days away, I was thinking about a fun cocktail to ring in the new year with. I decided that a Raspberry Sorbet Champagne Float would be fabulous.
It includes the traditional bubbly alongside a delicious raspberry sorbet – and let’s face it, I’m not out there living it up when the clock strikes midnight anymore. I’ll be on my couch watching the ball drop on television while wearing my comfy jammies – and a champagne sorbet float is going to be perfect for the occasion.
So, whether you are like me and are looking for a way to jazz up your midnight toast from your couch, or you want an elegant cocktail for any special occasion, you’re going to love this one.

How to Make This Raspberry Cocktail
It really couldn’t be any easier to make this tasty drink. However, if you’d like to make adjustments to it, here are some ideas for you:
Champagne: I like to use Barefoot Bubbly Pink Moscato, but you can use Prosecco or any brut champagne, too. You can even turn it into a mocktail with sparkling grape juice.
Sorbet: Sorbet works out nicely, but feel free to substitute sherbet in its place.
Raspberries: Fresh raspberries aren’t required (you’ll still have a deep fruity taste) but they make it just a bit extra special.
1. Add one scoop of raspberry sorbet per cocktail glass.
2. Pour ½ cup of champagne into each glass, over sorbet.
3. Garnish with fresh raspberries, if desired.
That’s all there is to it!
Enjoy this chic pink cocktail that will make a flawless romantic treat for any special celebration.
