Cheers to Cocktail Friday and this Prosecco Sorbet Float!

Can we talk books for a minute? I've been spending more time reading lately. I feel like only recently my attention span post-baby has reached the point where I can conceivably start and finish a book in less than 6 months. The first book I read cover to cover was written by Molly of Orangette called A Homemade Life. Some of you may know her blog and may have even read her book. I'm behind the times. Her book came out quite a while ago and I just never got around to reading it. It is lovely. Next up is Ruth Reichl's book Comfort Me with Apples. Has anyone else out there read it? I loved Tender at the Bone so I have high hopes for the sequel.

There is something comforting about losing myself in pages filled with descriptions of good food sticks with us as we remember people, places, and events. I think reading about how food has helped shape the experiences of others makes me even more aware of what I serve to my family and friends. I want them to look back on their time at my table feeling loved. Feeling cared for. And especially feeling like they want to 'pay it forward' by spreading the food love.

With Memorial Day weekend upon us, you are no doubt looking for ways to make the weekend festive and, well, memorable. This cocktail is a great, easy way to do just that. Raspberry thyme sorbet(I posted this a couple weeks ago- no ice cream maker needed!) or your favorite store-bought sorbet and prosecco create a stunningly beautiful, refreshing drink for the holiday weekend. You can easily transform this into a mocktail by adding ginger ale instead of the prosecco.

So, make some memories worth writing about and cheers to the beginning of summer with this elegant, fun, bubbly drink. Perfect for parties or for sipping while reading a good book outside under the shade of a tree.

Happy Memorial Day!
