Tired of regular cocktail? How about this Blood Orange Sorbet Mimosa? A fun ice cream float for adults. All you need is rosé champagne and a homemade blood orange sorbet.
With the blood orange sorbet that I made last week, I want to use that for something fun. How about a mimosa?
When we were about to leave Northern California, I said goodbye to a few friends. One of my friends gave me a bottle of rosé champagne. I planned to open it after we moved, but we were too busy opening boxes. Then I thought we can drink that on New Year’s Eve, but we were too tired and didn’t want to drink anything that late at night. Finally, we got to drink it by making cocktails! It was perfect!
Tart and sweet sorbet pairs with sparkling rosé wine. It’s the adult version of ice cream float. Did I mention the colors? Pink on top of pink! It was awesome. And it was also very delicious too. The citrus flavor really came through. I love the contrast of sweet, tart and bitter. I wouldn’t mind having that every weekend.
There’s nothing complicated about this recipe. Just pour the champagne over the sorbet and serve. My recipe is only for 2 servings, but 1 bottle of 750ml sparkling rosé should be enough for 4 – 6 servings. It all depends of how much sorbet and rosé you put in each glass. Who is ready to celebrate? Either a birthday, Valentine’s Day, the weekend, or just a hump day, there is always something that we can cheer about, right?
Blood Orange Sorbet Mimosas
- 4 scoops blood orange sorbet
- Sparkling Rosé wine
- Place 2 scoops of sorbet into each serving glass. Pour about 4 – 6 ounces (½ – ¾ cup) of sparkling rosé into each glass. Serve immediately.
- The blood orange sorbet is homemade. It’s very easy to do. But if you don’t have time for that, you can get a store-bought raspberry sorbet or lemon sorbet.
- You can use regular sparkling wine too, but the wine won’t be pink in color.
- One bottle of sparkling rosé is usually 750ml (25 oz/3 cups), which is enough for 4 – 6 servings.
