I recently made these for a fun girls night - a group of us met at a friends yoga studio for cocktails and a class and appetizers.
RASPBERRY CHAMPAGNE COCKTAILS
1/4 cup sugar to rim glasses
1 pint of raspberry sorbet
2 shots grand marnier
raspberries (optional garnish)
Place a shallow bowl of water alongside another shallow bowl with 1/4 cup sugar in it. Dip 4 cocktail glasses in water, then sugar to rim glass.
Place pint of raspberry sorbet in blender. Add two shots of orange liqueur. Fill blender with champagne to maximum fill line or up to one inch from top of blending pitcher. Place cover on blender tightly. Blend until smooth and pour into cocktail glasses. Garnish with a few raspberries and serve.
