Nothing says “celebrate” like some sparkling cocktails! This drink is like a refreshing raspberry champagne float that’s perfect for ladies luncheons or showers, even brunch!

We’re using Chambord raspberry liqueur to add that sweet fruity flavor, and the addition of frozen sherbet keeps it nice and cold with more delicious flavor.

When to Serve It

The pink color makes this a great signature drink for many occasions and holidays.

How to Make It

Use you favorite sparkling wine but make sure it’s Brut or Extra Dry. That means it’s less sweet and will mix with the other ingredients better. Use Prosecco or Cava if you like.

Here’s what you need.

  • Bottles of bubbly, well chilled
  • Raspberry sorbet or sherbet
  • Chambord raspberry liqueur
  • Fresh raspberries

Use a mini-size scoop to get the right size and shape for fluted classes. Add scoops of sherbet and raspberry liqueur to the glass and fill with sparkling wine or champagne.

Pour the champagne slowly to prevent it from overflowing. Top with fresh raspberries for a pretty garnish.

Use a drink stirrer, small spoon or straw to help break up the sherbet if you want to.

PARTY TIP: Pre-scoop the sherbet into a serving bowl and keep it in the freezer until ready to use.

Substitutions

Use different flavors to get different colors of this drink. That way you can match it to your party colors.

  • Orange. Replace the raspberry flavors for Peach Schnapps or Cointreau and Orange sherbet.
  • Yellow. Use Limoncello and lemon sorbet for a yellow theme.
  • Green. Omit the liqueur and use lime sherbet for a green theme party, or St. Patrick’s Day.

PARTY TIP: To serve this for the mom-to-be at a baby shower, you can use ginger ale instead of the champagne.

Doesn’t this raspberry champagne float sound tasty! Try it with orange, lime, or strawberry flavored sherbet too.

I’ve been making versions of this for years as you can see in my modern owl baby shower.
