It doesn’t quite feel like spring has gotten the memo. It’s been cold! So cold and rainy that it feels more like mid winter, but today’s forecast gives me a little hope. Hope that warmer temps are on the way! Of course these warmer temps have me thinking about all things spring, including rosé season, which is currently upon us! #yeswayrosé! I certainly don’t need a special occasion or season to enjoy a nice glass of rosé but there’s something about the color and floral fruit notes that surely make it fitting for spring and summer.
Feeling inspired by the upcoming weather and this lovely pink drink, I last-minute made rosé floats! Because honestly I can’t think of anything much better than a glass of rosé topped with sorbet. Two of my fav things. Oh yes, this grown up fruity and fizzy concoction is a fabulous refreshment to enjoy and also to serve to guests, while using the fruits that are in season at the moment. A spring and summer must!
Blood Orange Rosé Floats
Speaking of fruits in season, I found blood oranges at Whole Foods today and knew that they’d pair beautifully with this bubbly. Not only for their jewel like color, but also their citrusy and subtle berry flavor. I scooped in some sweet blood orange sorbet over top and voila! A grown up dessert beverage that I promise you’ll make over and over, once you give them a try!!
Garnish the floats with edible blooms, straws and spoons for the ultimate rosé float experience.
Pretty glassware like these lovely pink goblets from Juliska will only add to the overall presentation!Print
Blood orange sorbet topped with sparkling rosé and finished with fresh blood oranges and edible blooms for garnish.
- 1 bottle of high quality sparkling rosé
- 1 pint blood orange sorbet
- sliced blood oranges and edible blooms for garnish
- Add 3 scoops of sorbet to each float glass.
- Pour sparkling rosé over the sorbet.
- Garnish with blood orange slices.
Scoop sorbet, pour bubbly, garnish, repeat.
The floats are as easy as they look to make! You can even scoop the sorbet into rounds in advance and then place them in the freezer for simple and speedy serving.
Just add the bubbly a little sunshine and indulge!
Now let’s hope this post for rosé floats marks the start of warmer days ahead for all! If so, let that be an excuse for you to make yourself one or two of these while bidding farewell to winter for good!!
On a side note, my hubby was home today and helped snap a few action shots of me making while prepping. The floats were ready in a just a few minutes and it was nice for us to be able to each enjoy one together after I completed the shoot. Not like we would ever let them go to waste!
Cheers all! If interested, my striped top, the pink glassware and silverware are linked below!
