Author Notes

This Raspberry Rose-Sparkler Float is for pretending that you're sitting on a sun-dappled terrace in the south of France. The recipe is written with raspberry jam, for ease, but if you have a little extra time, you can make your own syrupy raspberry compote: Cook a punnet of raspberries down gently with sugar and water, and any number of other aromatics that pair nicely with raspberries and pink sparkling wine, like lime zest, pink peppercorns, fresh tarragon, or kirsch. For this version of the float, I used Talenti Gelato's Roman Raspberry Sorbetto. —Cristina Sciarra

What You'll Need
  • 1/4 cup raspberry jam
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1/4 cup (25 grams) sugar
  • 1 pint raspberry sorbet
  • Sparkling rosé wine or rosé Champagne
  1. Spoon the raspberry jam amongst the four glasses. Add 1/4 cup raspberries and 1 tablespoon sugar to each glass; muddle. Divide the pint of raspberry sorbet over the muddled raspberries. Fill each glass to the top with sparkling wine.

Wonderful. Out on the back deck overlooking the waterfall with two good friends and more than one champagne float each. What’s a better way to spend a summer afternoon?
