Perfectly pink, Raspberry Sorbet Champagne Cocktail is a refreshing burst of flavor and a great way to celebrate Valentine's Day with your love. Raspberry sorbet scooped into a champagne glass or coupe, topped with cointreau for a pop of orange flavor and finished off with your favorite champagne.
A simple glass of bubbles always hits the spot, but for a special celebration it is fun to add a twist. With Valentine's Day just a few days away, it is time to spoil our loved ones or our favorite Galentines with a fun cocktail and festive desserts that are perfectly pink, bubbly and so delicious. Adding sorbet to your champagne creates a fun spin on a classic ice cream float. Make this cocktail extra special using our Easy Homemade Strawberry Sorbet.
What is a Raspberry Sorbet Cocktail?
Cocktail, float or punch, sipping on this will be a refreshing touch to your night. Similar to your favorite ice cream float, this one is made with a fruit based sorbet, cointreau for a splash of citrus and bubbles. As you sip on this cocktail, the sorbet will melt and will add so much character to your drink.
How To Make This Champagne Cocktail
Made with only three ingredients, this cocktail is a fun addition to your celebration! Raspberry Sorbet is the base of this cocktail, it will add a pure flavor of raspberry, the most beautiful color and will create a perfectly chilled drink to sip on. Once you scoop the sorbet into the glass, be prepared to add the cointreau or your favorite orange liquor for just a dash of citrus flavor that will pair well with the raspberry. You will start to see the sorbet starting to melt and now you can add the champagne. Pour the bubbles to fill the remainder of the glass and enjoy! Feeling fancy, garnish your glass with a fresh sprig of thyme or an edible flower.
History of A Champagne Coupe
I am kind of obsessed with drinking my champagne out of a Coupe. This style glass was the original champagne glass in France in the 1700s. The shallow bowl was said to keep the bubbles alive longer and allowed the champagne to breath once it was poured into the glass. History aside, I am loving that this style glass has made a comeback because I am here for the Coupe.
