Sorbet Champagne Cocktails

two glasses of Sorbet Champagne Cocktails

Remember when you used to dunk scoops of ice cream into soda to make your own homemade ice cream sodas as a kid? It was a constant afternoon treat for me and my friends during hot summer days. Well, this is like that, except a more grown up version.

You can use any sorbet, but I chose a dark color because I was trying to get something festive for Fourth of July. I had been eyeing this Ciao Bella Blackberry Cabernet sorbet on my last few shopping trips and this was the perfect excuse for me to buy it and try it out. I love the dark red purple hue.

When the sorbet goes into your bubbly, it separates, creating a two-toned drink. This is so easy and perfect to serve at a party this summer.

Sorbet Champagne Cocktails

Total Time: 5 minutes
Course: Drinks
Cuisine: American
These Sorbet Champagne Cocktails are the grown-up version of ice cream sodas I loved when I was a kid. They are perfect for summer parties.


  • champagne of your choice (see note)
  • sorbet of your choice (see note)


  • Pour champagne into glasses. Shortly before serving, add a scoop of sorbet into each glass. The sorbet will begin to melt and eventually will separate to two layers.


Tips for Making Sorbet Champagne Cocktails
  • You can use any flavor you like, but the darker color ones will show a more distinct two-tone color as the ice cream melts in the champagne.
  • I tend to like a sweeter champagne for this cocktail. You can also use sparkling wines or wine spritzers instead of champagne.
