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.

    You are my hero for emailing the hotline! I always assume that bakers like you and Megan know every trick to baking…but it weirdly comforts me that you get nervous sometimes too!

    Oh I totally have no shame in asking for help. Like I always say, I’m really good at following recipes, but the second I have to do something out of the ordinary, I get really nervous…

    One of the many reasons I love KAF! I think this is a great thing to have in the freezer for last-minute company or planning ahead. I only wish I had seen it when I still had a surplus of apples!
