Summer’s Easiest Cocktail—Sorbet Rosé Floats
An Instaworthy post by French Market & Cafe of Kansas City shows how easy it is to pamper yourself this summer with a beautiful, refreshing rosé sorbet float. “Art Fair necessities—Strawberry Sorbet Fizz!,” the caption reads. “Join us for a quick break and a wonderful cocktail.”
During the video, a single scoop of strawberry sorbet is added to a stemless wine glass. Next, the glass is topped with a sparkling rosé, providing the cocktail with a lovely pink hue and its bubbly texture.
Lastly, it’s garnished with a fresh sprig of mint. That’s all it takes to make this elegant, invigorating brew!
Infusing a modern twist on a childhood favorite, this refreshing, light drink is a great way to sip the summer away. With its unique versatility, the rosé sorbet float can be prepared with any dairy-free sorbet flavor. While strawberry is classic, raspberry, lemon, and mango are also divine flavors to beat the heat.
But, it’s also possible to swap out sorbet for sherbet if you’d prefer something creamier. Also, if you’re low on sparkling rosé, you can use either use Prosecco or Champagne instead.
However, the simplicity and elegance of this superb summer cocktail make it just as unique as any of the flavors you can choose.
