Here’s the question of the day: Do you drink your dessert? My answer is yes but I know I am slightly bias. I have never been much of a dessert person. Even as a kid I never wanted frosting on my birthday cakes. I really only liked my great aunt’s chocolate liquor cake. My streak for booze came early! So, most of the time at a restaurant I would much rather have a nightcap or some type of cocktail to end my meal instead of a dessert.
I know that this does not appeal to everyone so I have made a drink that is the middle ground. This drink has raspberry sorbet which is the dessert part and Aperol and champagne which is the booze part. I am currently obsessed with Aperol! It has awesome flavors and is very versatile. What could be better than a dessert float? Nothing. You must make this for your friends. They will freak out.
