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
Raspberry Champagne Float
This simple, beautiful cocktail is perfect for brunch or New Year’s Eve!
- Total Time: 5 minutes
- Yield: 1 1x
- 1 tsp. Chambord
- 2 tbsp. raspberry sorbet or sherbet
- 3 oz. champagne or prosecco
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!

Ooh pretty drink, Andi!
My Christmas was pretty good. We went up to Lakeland, saw some friends Tuesday night, spent time with Ken’s family on Christmas Day. Good times! Glad to hear you had a good Christmas. :)
Thank you, Julie! That sounds like a fun-filled Christmas! I hope you get a nice break from school and work. Happy New Year!
good gosh that looks lovely :-) alas, am not at home where I have easy access to champagne and chambord. Just the same, cheers to you and what’s sure to be a brilliant 2014 for The Weary Chef :-D
Thank you, Liz! I hope you have a good New Year’s sans champagne ;)
