Raspberry Champagne Float

Raspberry Champagne Float
Champagne and raspberries stir up in my heart & mind the most beautiful things in life - romance, love, weddings, celebrations... so it was only natural that I thought of conjuring up a recipe that would bring together these wonderful creations of nature. Even so, I must admit that I was a tad skeptical on whether the combination would live up to my high expectations. But oh my, what a sublime dessert beverage this Raspberry Champagne Float has turned out to be! So exquisite & heavenly with luscious flavors of vanilla ice cream, tangy jelly and fresh berries soaked in the sweet-sour bubbliness of champagne. The simple trick of creating layers of ingredients and serving in champagne flutes gives a sophisticated, chic appearance to the dessert beverage & sets it a class apart. You can enjoy this dreamy concoction to celebrate special occasions with family & friends. My personal favorite would be to serve it as the final course of a candle-lit dinner for two - it is sure to raise the romance to a new high!

Making Raspberry Champagne Float is a moment's work once you have the ingredients at hand. The dessert beverage is amazingly simple and quick to make, and you can increase/decrease the quantity of ingredients to suit your taste. Needless to say, this is not a recipe for kids due to the alcohol content, but you can make it kid-friendly by replacing the champagne with a fizzy lemonade.

Time to pop the cork & relish life's sweet pleasures :)
