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’ve been wanting to try out this cake, but I just don’t like the addition of sour cream. I may have to get over my dislike of the sour stuff and make this. It looks great!

    We subbed greek yogurt for the sour cream in case that sounds better to you.

    The cake looks fantastic!!! I have never been strawberry picking, I’m sure my kids would love it though. We go apple picking every fall though.

    Funny, I just “found” your blog looking through a bunch of old recipes that I bookmarked in a file like a year ago. I had your Samoas Bars bookmarked to make and I forgot about them. I still want to make them!!!
