Champagne Floats

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.

Champagne Floats

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.

Pssssst. I found this ^^ mini bottle of champagne at Whole Foods for $8 but I've seen them at Total Wine too. They're the perfect size for two floats, which means you're not drowning in champagne or feeling it the next day. Bottoms up!
