Blood Orange Sorbet Champagne Cocktails with Fresh Mint

This is the perfect beverage for the long Memorial Weekend ahead! I made this with my mom for Mother’s Day brunch using champagne, fresh mint from her garden and Ciao Bella Blood Orange Sorbet. Ciao Bella is an all natural brand that uses organic cane juice as the sweetener. While this is still technically sugar and should only be eaten in moderation, it’s much more pure and easy on the body to digest than processed white sugar found in most sorbet.

I used a scoop of this sorbet in each glass of champagne and added freshly chopped mint. It turned out so refreshing and unique. I can’t wait to try it with lemon sorbet and fresh mint! The sorbet was nearly all melted by the time I took the picture, unfortunately. But it’s still a really pretty drink when the sorbet melts.

I hope you enjoy your long weekend and, in between all the sunbathing and drinking, take time to remember all the men and women who gave their lives serving in the United States Armed Forces.
