Raspberry Sorbet and Ginger Beer Floats

Once I decided to make homemade ginger beer, I knew I wanted to make a float of some sort with it. Once we tasted just how spicy the ginger beer came out, I knew it needed to be something sweet, like this raspberry sorbet.

This was a match made in summertime treat heaven. Drinking it through a straw before the sorbet melted yields a spicy gingery drink with hints of raspberry. But as the sorbet melts into a slush, you get a well balanced sweet and spicy concoction sure to cool you down from the summer’s heat.

No recipe for this post today. I simply scooped some raspberry sorbet in to a cup, topped it off with some ginger beer, and served it with a fun straw. You could obviously use store-bought versions of these components if you want as well.

    I made this tonight and it was truly one of the worse things I’ve made; the sauce was really chunky and dry, and stuck in my throat every time I took a bite, and the garlic made it even drier. I would not recommend this to anyone.

    This is very good. Leaving some of the pasta water is important, as well as adding the olive oil. Grating the beet into the pasta made a gorgeous colored magenta. Eating pasta right away prevents drying out. An optional addition could be adding a can of coconut milk to make a pink saucy dish. Topped with nuts and cheese, yes!
