These are a fun twist on the classic Mimosa Recipe.  Instead of adding orange juice you will be pouring the champagne over your favorite sherbet.  Freezing the sherbet in small scoops beforehand, makes this easy to prepare and pretty to sip!

How to Make Summer Mimosa Floats:

Ingredients Needed for Mimosa Floats

Saucey: Alcohol Delivered To Your Door. No Delivery Fees. No Minimums.

I started by using a cookie scoop to scoop out some sherbet.  I placed the scoops on a cookie sheet and placed in the freezer for an hour.  Doing this helps keep the sherbet from just instantly dissolving when you pour in the champagne.  It also makes it fit in the opening of the champagne glass easily!

Once frozen, I placed 2 scoops in each champagne glass.

Pop the top of a chilled bottle of champagne! Yay!

Slowly top the sherbet with the champagne.  Go slow.

Then you enjoy!  These are drinks with so many layers!  First sip, the champagne is the star.  A few sips later you get more and more of the sherbet flavor as it melts into the champagne.  Last sip is sweet bubbly summer mimosa float deliciousness!  Repeat!

You can change up the sherbet flavors or even pour the champagne over my Pineapple Frozen Yogurt or Peach Frozen Yogurt.  It would be equally as delicious!
