I love a refreshing cold sip. One of my favorite regular spots, Highball and Harvest at the Ritz Carlton in Orlando Florida delighted me with a cocktail with sorbet. I wanted to dabble in this refreshing idea just in time for those hot Florida summer months!
The following recipe can be interchanged with different flavor profiles. I've listed some of my favorites, but get creative!
Blood Orange Sorbet/Tequila/Pineapple Juice/Rosemary (Cheers Sippin Gypsy Team Tequila)
Raspberry Sorbet/Gin/Strawberry Lemonade Juice/Sage (Cheers Sippin Gypsy Team Gin)
Peach Sorbet/Vodka/Orange Juice/Basil (Cheers Sippin Gypsy Team Vodka)
Mango Sorbet/Rum/Orange Pineapple Juice/Mint (Cheers Sippin Gypsy Team Rum)
1 scoop of sorbet
Champagne (topped off before serving)
2 oz. spirit
3 oz. juice
1 sprig of an herb
Scoop sorbet into your serving glass and set aside. In a small tin shaker add spirit, juice and herb to ice and shake until tin is cold to the touch. Strain and poor over sorbet and top off with Champagne.
I make a non spirited version of this for my kids: 5 oz of juice and soda water to add sparkle!
Please add in comments your favorite flavor combinations! Cheers Sippin Gypsy Team Bubbles!
