These Blackberry Champagne Floats are sweet, fizzy, and perfect for New Year's Eve or summertime. These bubbly floats are refreshing and endlessly customizable.
These champagne cocktails are so simple to throw together, yet look beautiful and taste great. They really only require 2 ingredients: sorbet and bubbly. Though the berries and mint are optional garnish, I think that they really boost the impressiveness of these drinks.
Sean and I had them last weekend. I had a leftover bottle of bubbly in the fridge that somehow didn't make its way into mimosas over my birthday weekend.
They'd be perfect at brunch, a NYE party, or even as a dessert cocktail. Or you know, because it's Friday.

Feel free to mix it up, too. Does raspberry sorbet sound like your jam? Use that instead! Top with whatever kind of bubbly you prefer. Trust me, even the cheap, sweet stuff is great here.
Friends and I used fruit flavored champagnes back in the '80s. Just added vanilla ice cream to the strawberry, orange or almond flavored champagnes. Not sure if those champagne flavors are still available but they sure made a tasty float on a hot summer day.
