This Pink Champagne Float is the perfect treat for Valentine’s Day! These would also be pretty for a bridal shower, Mother’s Day or any day you need something special!
This raspberry pink champagne float is great for date night in!
This float was so fun to make and don’t worry I didn’t drink it. I only took a sip for taste testing purposes and let me tell you it was hard to put that glass down and not chug away!! Only 19 weeks to go before this baby is born and then I will be able to fully enjoy this tasty drink!
This is definitely a fruity drink which is not my husband’s cup of tea. He prefers something a little stronger and less girly. The only way I can drink hard liquor is if it tastes like kool-aid. I know, I’m a weenie!
About this pink champagne float recipe:
I used raspberry sherbet in this but you could also use raspberry sorbet, I just like the creaminess the sherbet adds to the drink. I also added pineapple juice, sprite (or 7-up could be used) and topped it with freshly whipped cream.
The whipped cream is purely optional but I am a little crazy and wanted to make this pink champagne float over the top.
The color of this drink would make it perfect for bridal showers, Mother’s Day or any special ladies get together! You could even set it up so your guests could make their own drink.
Just mix the pineapple juice and the sprite together in a pitcher. Set this on your table next to the raspberry sherbet and pink champagne. Set some fresh fruit and a can of whipped cream to the table then let your guests build their own drink. How fun!!
At first, you will want to eat/drink these with a spoon. It’s sorta like a grown-up root beer float only using different ingredients. Then toss that spoon aside and begin chugging, I mean sipping, this luscious fizzy drink. It’s definitely a party in a glass! Enjoy!

In a glass of choice place in a couple of scoops of sherbet.
In a small measuring glass mix the sprite and pineapple juice. Pour desired amount over the sherbet. I used about a 1/4 of the pineapple/sprite mix for 1 serving. Top glass with pink champagne and a dollop of sweetened whipped cream if desired. Serve immediately.
- If you would like to make this a DIY station at a party adjust accordingly to the number of guests you will be serving. Mix the pineapple juice and sprite in a large pitcher. Place next to the raspberry sherbet and bottles of champagne. Add fresh fruit and a can of whipped topping.
