Holidays are never long enough. In my book, each holiday deserves about 2 weeks of celebration. Even the piddly ones like Columbus Day and Flag Day deserve a little extra fanfare. And birthdays? They get 3 weeks, even if it's just a party of one for most of the time.
It just makes life more fun if you have a theme to go along with it, so to kick Valentine’s Day off right, I decided to make champagne floats. On a Sunday two weeks before the actual event no less. While the hubs was deeply enthralled in a random sporting event on TV, I was covertly popping bottles of champagne and sneaking spoonfuls of sorbet hoping he wouldn’t notice (<--- true love).
It didn’t work, but hey, you can't blame me for trying.
Raspberry Champagne Floats
Bottle of champagne
Raspberry sorbet (I used Talenti because it only has 4 ingredients and it's amazing)
Fresh blackberries (or raspberries/strawberries/whatever you have on hand)
- Chill champagne in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours prior to making your floats.
- Place two small scoops of sorbet in each glass.
- Top off with champagne.
- Garnish with blackberries just before serving.
- Grab a spoon and enjoy!
