Strawberry Prosecco Float | @creativculinary

Why yes it is Friday Cocktails on a Saturday. I just had one of those days. Not a bad day but visitors and phone calls and more visitors and by the time I had these photos completed it was either post really late or wait until this morning. Here I am! Besides, this is so light you could have it for brunch!

After a week of sherbets, I thought, ‘Why not end it on a cool note with a bubbly ice cream treat?’ Part cocktail, all dessert and so easy and delicious. I started serving frozen creations with Prosecco a couple of years ago after making some sorbet but it has now become standard summer fare. Not only is it the perfect light treat after a summer meal but the bubbly elevates simple ice cream and strawberries beyond ‘just’ a sundae.

This could not be easier. It’s almost as if switching up the serving dish alone makes it more special…and then add a bit of bubbly. Serving for a crowd including kids and non-drinkers? Simple, just sub sparkling soda or a lemon-lime beverage for the Prosecco. Whatever you choose it will be a welcome and light and easy. Just like this post. I have those days with nothing monumental to say (OK, not like I ever say anything all that monumental!) and I’ve threatened to just share a favorite and urge you to try it. That’s today.
