Tasty Tuesday (on Wednesday): Champagne Cocktail with Mint and Lemon Sorbet

Photo and recipe courtesy of Fresh365online

New Orleans is definitely showing signs of spring this week.  Just last night, I came home to see that the daffodils we had planted are blooming!!  I just love this time of year.  It's perfect for porch sitting and cocktail sipping.  There is nothing better on a warm spring night than a cool and refreshing drink.  This jazzed up beverage sounds too good to be true!  It's like a mojito met New Year's Eve.  I cannot wait to try it this weekend!!

Champagne Cocktails with Mint & Lemon Sorbet

makes 1 cocktail

2 t fresh mint leaves, muddled or finely chopped
2 large scoops lemon sorbet
1/3 c vodka
3/4 c champagne or sparkling wine

In a tall glass, place a pinch of mint. Add one scoop lemon sorbet, another pinch mint and the other scoop sorbet. Pour in vodka, then top with champagne and the rest of the mint. Garnish with a mint sprig.

What's your favorite spring time activity?


  1. That drink looks yum-o!!

    I was just in NOLA for the RnR marathon/1.5 last week for 4 days. We stayed at the Hotel Monteleone....they have the BEST COSMOs!!!

    Happy Wednesday!

  2. Oh my goodness - how fabulous does this drink look and sound! xo

  3. Oh my this is fantastic! I think I'll try mine with a few muddled raspberries. :)

  4. Oh gosh, I would pay big bucks to have this in my hand right now. Tomorrow is going to be a sunny day here, hopefully I'll be able to enjoy a drink as delectable as this! x

  5. This sounds delicious. All we did at this time of year last year was sit on the porch uptown drinking wine with a newborn Thatcher in his rock n play. Swoon - I miss those days! Now it's porch time once he's in bed - ha!
