Hey, my friend!  We are well into November already, can you believe it??

I don’t know about you, but as the calendar advances, my thoughts are turning more and more towards holiday entertaining.  Cranberry sorbet champagne floats have been on my must-make list for SO long, and I’m so glad to finally have made them.  And to be sharing the idea with you!

Cranberry Sorbet Champagne Floats: such a fun way to celebrate the season!

Can you think of anything more fun than a bubbly pink drink topped with a sweet scoop of frozen fruitiness?  Just looking at it makes me feel happy.

And it’s perfect for the season too.  Cranberries are abundant at this time of year and they’re at their peak of freshness.  Their tart flavor is a perfect counterpoint to all the rich fall flavors we’re cooking with for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
