Before we get to celebrating #ThirstyThursday, there is something that I MUST get off my chest.

The first apple recipe landed in my email’s inbox this morning.  And, I may have had a (totally minor) temper tantrum.  No one was around to witness my childlike antics, so who can say for sure what my reaction REALLY looked like.  😉

In all seriousness though, I’m going to be completely transparent here.

While I won’t hate on anyone who wants to press fast forward on their life, and basically skip through the latter part of the most GLORIOUS season of the year, I want you lovely readers to know one thing…

You WON’T be seeing ANY apple, pumpkin, or fall flavored recipes on NSN until autumn has OFFICIALLY arrived (which is on, or after, September 22 at 4:02 P.M. EDT).

I refuse to participate in that nonsense.  Life is short enough and the produce of summer is simply too stunning for that foolishness.

Not to mention, it’s still hotter outside than a firecracker on the 4th of July.

So, friends, I am going to BASK in the summer sun.  And STUFF my face with all the fabulous fruit, creamy-dreamy ice cream, and ALL the things sensationally summer until I can’t stuff no mo’.

Who’s with me?!?

I’m offering up these fancy floats as a bribe…

Peach & Strawberry Sorbet Rosé Float

AKA festive, fizzy summer fun that can double as cocktails AND dessert!

This dessert-esque luxurious libation is light and refreshing with quadruple scoops of fabulously fruity, luscious peach and strawberry sorbet, topped off with aromatic liqueur and effervescent, sweet rosé.

The taste is bomb dot com, but my favorite part of this float?

It’s like a real life cocktail transformer.

This float starts off as a grownup, fizzy sundae you eat with a spoon, and then it magically changes, as the sorbet starts to melt, into a silky smooth, rich cocktail perfect for guzzling.

It is STUPENDOUS.

And you just shouldn’t celebrate summer without a Sorbet Rosé Float…. or five.  😉

Recipe Notes, Tips & Tricks:

  1. You can substitute Granita, Italian Ice or Sherbet for the Sorbet if desired.  Granita and Italian Ice will yield the most similar texture float as sorbet.  If you use sherbet you will have a creamier textured float since sherbet contains dairy.
  2. You can substitute prosecco or plain champagne for the rosé if desired.
  3. The liqueur is optional, but recommended!  I have used both Blood Orange Liqueur and Elderflower Liqueur when making these floats and both are delicious.  Blood orange liqueur will add a velvety sweetness along with notes of orange and raspberry to the float.  Elderflower Liqueur will add warm floral notes to the float.
  4. You can either purchase sorbet or make it yourself.  I’ve included instructions to DIY sorbet in the notes section of the recipe below.

Kids shouldn’t have all the summer fun!  Add these boozy dessert floats to your summer celebration line up!  But don’t forget to bookmark, or Pin, these for New Years Eve, Valentine’s Day and ALL your celebratory soirees!  Sorbet Rosé Floats shouldn’t just be limited to summer.

Until next week, friends, cheers – to float #adulting.
