Champagne Lemon Floats

Remember how I made lemon sorbet awhile back? Well, DIY Cocktails came over and we made a mimosa-like drink with it.

It was beyond simple. We scooped sorbet into a champagne glass and add champagne. It melted the sorbet and voila, a new way to drink champagne.

But then we thought, lemon, sugar, champagne: why, we’re halfway to a French 75. All we need is the gin.

So naturally, we added the gin.

Best French 75 ever. Seriously, it could not have been easier, the sorbet, a shot of gin, and some champagne. You should try it.

YES, PLEASE! Now I have an extra-good reason to carve out some freezer space for the ice cream machine bowl… :)
