Sparkly Desserts

Sparkly Desserts

mackicayloma lists down some great sparkly desserts for adults. Great ideas for you to try next weekend!

I’m not talking about the 4th of July kind of sparkly, I’m talking the adult sparkling wine variety that I keep my cabinet stocked with. I may be known among my girlfriends to always have a bottle of bubbly on hand and ready to open and serve as they walk in the door. And now I’ve found these great recipes to serve the sparkly stuff for dessert. This definitely calls for a ladies night, especially in the heat of the summer. What’s really cool is that I can make some of these with sparkling juice so the small set doesn’t feel left out. Question is, which one should I serve?

Grown Up Frozen Pops
I think this might be my favorite sparkly dessert as far as looks go and this one would be so much fun for the kiddos with sparkling juice.

How to:
Fancy up frozen fruit pops with a splash of Prosecco for a fun and colorful display.

Sgroppinos: An Italian Frozen Cocktail
For this treat you take a ball of frozen lemon sorbet and pour a bit of vodka and limoncello and finish off with prosecco. I could pull of a virgin version by using lemonade with sparkling white grape juice poured over the sorbet.

How to:
4 pints lemon sorbet
1 1/2 cups chilled vodka
2 1/4 cups chilled prosecco
3/4 cup limoncello liqueur
simple syrup, but only if needed and to taste
Take the sorbet out of the freezer and let it sit at room temperature until it’s soft but not melted, approximately 15-20 minutes.  Scoop the sorbet into a large chilled bowl and pour in your favorite vodka. Briskly whisk the sorbet and vodka together until the mixture is smoothie smooth, and then whisk in the chilled Prosecco.  Taste (yeah, tough job but someone’s gotta do it) and adjust the sweetness with simple syrup, if needed. Divide amongst twelve chilled glasses (I like martini glasses) and finish with a little drizzle of Limoncello liqueur, and serve.

Champagne Cocktail With Mint And Lemon Sorbet
You will definitely beat the heat and keep up the giggles and good times with this sparkly dessert and the mint makes it extra refreshing...

How to:
(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.
