Cocktails are customary for holidays and special occasions. I wanted to share something really special with you. And so I present these blood orange sorbetto champagne cocktails.
Sometimes, I think about New Year’s Eve and all the people going out and partying. My step-dad always used to call it amateur’s night. People who don’t normally drink head out and binge on cheap beers and it is just not pretty. I don’t go out on New Year’s Eve, more because I’m not confident I could make it until midnight. But also, I’d rather be home, enjoying a good cocktail.
This year, I will be whipping up some of these blood orange sorbet champagne cocktails. It is customary to sip champagne on New Year’s, isn’t it? That is all fine and dandy and I know champagne is top. But I honestly would rather jazz it up a little, make it just a bit more special for ringing things in.
In this cocktail, I added a bit of blood orange Talenti sorbetto. I first grabbed a pint of Talenti last year at the grocery store. Honestly, the sleek packaging and interesting flavors caught my eye. I believe it was some sort of salted caramel chocolate chip that did me in and since then, I cannot. stop. eating. it. When I pictured a champagne cocktail with pizzazz, I immediately thought to add sorbet and knew Talenti would have a great flavor for me. I played with the idea of a raspberry or a strawberry, something a bit classic. But the blood orange has a great zing to it. It really doesn’t get much better than this!
For now, we’ll be taking a break until after New Year’s. I leave you with this cocktail for now. Wishing all of you a safe, happy New Year! See you on Monday, January 5 with some great, healthier recipes!
This is not a sponsored post. I just happen to really, really like Talenti!
