Champagne Tastes

I adore champagne.  However, I am the only one in my house who feels this way.  My dear hubby doesn't like the taste.  As a result, I don't treat myself very often.  I mean, it has to be a special occasion for me to drink a whole bottle myself.  And that's quite a bit for a girl who can't even drink a whole can of Coke.  I have discovered one bottle has enough bubbles to last two days.  Especially if you stick a spoon in the top (handle side down, of course).

My favorite is spumante.  What can I say?  I'm a sweet girl.  Recently, I had the idea of sprucing it up.  While browsing the grocery store for desserts one evening, I discovered Raspberry Sorbet by Haagen-Dazs.  It didn't take long for me to think about combining raspberry sorbet and champagne.  Its an sort of "adult float", if you will.


Both are quite lovely on their own, but together its an extra special treat.  Plus, it creates a pretty pink color.  Delicious and beautiful, what else can you ask for in a drink?  I think it would make a festive holiday drink; perfect for New Year's or Valentine's day.  Of course, it would be best served in a champagne flute, maybe with a fresh raspberry garnish.

What do you think?  Do you have a special holiday drink?  Or perhaps a favorite nightcap?  I'd love to hear about it.

Have you tried Barefoot Bubbly's Moscato Spumante? That's my favorite cheap bubbly.

I have tried that one, but I'm not really a fan. I like moscato, but I'm apparently really picky about it.
