The best thing to do with this is let it sit a while and let the sorbet melt into the champagne. It gets this creamy texture which is just fantastic. I used lemon sorbet for this and really liked the combination. Made for the Babes of ZWT4.
Yum.. this is in essence similar to the drink that I know in New Zealand to be called an "Ice Cream Soda" and once the carbonated drink (alcholic or otherwise) hits the ice cream ( or in this case Sorbet) it fizzes up the glass very quickly so I needed to use a tall glass to contain it in, I have no clue how to manage that chemical reaction in the limited space of a shot glass. Not that I would have managed to get two scoops of sorbet into a shot glass anyway ? The technical difficulties aside, the taste of this is very refreshing indeed, I used raspberry falvours for both the drink and the sorbet and it was a wonderful afternoon thirst quencher. Made for Zaar World Tour 2008. Thanks !
Absolutely delicious! I made this using lemon sorbet and prosecco. JUST heavenly as Liza said! It DID remind me of Venice! :) I will definitely make this one again - very soon! Thank you, Annacia!! Made for ZWT4.
Had this years ago in Italy...Venice, when my life was exciting! Anyway we were at a tiny pizza joint and they served this. A scoop of lime gelato/sorbetto topped with prosecco in a champagne flute. HEAVEN in the hot summer. Thanks so much for posting and bringing back a great memory!
