It's finally Friday! Since I started out this week and the beach and then worked the other half of the week I could not wait for the weekend to arrive so that I could enjoy a little more fun in the sun before my fall schedule kicks in. Yesterday I shared with your some great tips on how to host your own Gatsby themed party and mentioned that when it came to the food and drinks just make sure to have a lot of champagne on hand. However, this doesn't mean that all your champagne has to be served straight up. There are tons of recipes that incorporate a bottle of the bubbly into the ingredients including this champagne sorbet from Yeah. We Bake. It is perfect to serve at an end of summer Gatsby gathering or anytime you would like to serve a bubbly dessert (for those that are 21 and over please)! Here is what you will need:

Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cups champagne or sparkling wine
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp light corn syrup
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • juice of 1 grapefruit
  • juice of 2 lemons 
  • water

Instructions
  1. Pour the champagne, sugar, corn syrup, and zest into a saucepan and bring to a vigorous boil so that the sugar completely dissolves then remove from heat. 
  2. Juice the grapefruit and lemons into a measuring cup and add water so that the total liquid level is 1 3/4 cups. 
  3. Strain the champagne mixture into a bowl along with the grapefruit juice, lemon juice, and water. 
  4. Place the mixture in the refrigerator overnight to chill.
  5. The next day take the mixture and follow the instructions that came with your ice cream maker. Once done, transfer the sorbet to a freezable container and let firm until the desired consistency is reached. (For those without ice cream makers you can try using a food processor, blender or this recipe from Food.com.)
  6. Now you are ready to serve!
