Hello, my friends! How was your Christmas? Ours was packed with toys, candy, kite flying, and Chinese food. We are one lucky family over here! With New Year’s being less than a week away, I felt compelled to bring you a champagne cocktail today. In fact, I think it might be breaking some sort of cocktail blogger code to do otherwise. Since I’m a good, law-abiding citizen, I bring you this Raspberry Champagne Float! This drink is pretty, no? It’s easy too and good, good, GOOD! Why toast the New Year with a plain old glass of bubbly when you could have this magenta beauty in hand? I would certainly want to kiss whoever handed me this champagne cocktail. Cheers, and Happy (almost) New Year!Print
Pour Chambord into a champagne flute. Use a small disher or teaspoon to scoop three small balls of sherbet, into the glass.
Carefully pour champagne to fill the glass nearly to the top. Allow the bubbles to die down before adding more. Be prepared to sip overflowing bubbles.
Sherbet will make a creamier cocktail than the one in the photo, which is made with sorbet.
If you don’t have Chambord, you can leave it out and still have a tasty drink!
