Hot summer nights call for enticing cocktails that are memorable! This adult version of a “float” is all about being playful as well as refreshing. You are going to love these Cherry PAMA Liqueur Sorbet Floats as they are exactly that. Playful and refreshing!
When we are entertaining, we like to keep the setting light as well as casual. We want our guests to relax completely and enjoy themselves, and not be uncomfortable. Our settings tend to be more casually chic than white linen and Mozart. This summer we have been all about setting the theme of the evening in shades of pink along with fun little pops such as sparkly candles or fairy lights along with being kind of funky. Think French collides into Morocco. Fun pieces such as colorful plates or small bites adorn the table setting. In the spirit and collaboration between Chez Us and Celebrate Summer with PAMA Pomegranate Liqueur, we have created a Pinterest board where you can get a glimpse into our entertaining style for this celebration of summer.
A summer party at Chez Us begins with a fun cocktail, and this recipe for Cherry PAMA Liqueur Sorbet Floats will not disappoint. The recipe begins by making a simple (and delicious) cherry sorbet, which is made with fresh cherries along with PAMA Liqueur. Tip, a cherry pitter will make this recipe even easier – cannot recommend enough. The sorbet is slightly sweet as well as tart with hints of pomegranate; which is great with any sparkling wine or sparkling water to make this fun cocktail float. Matter of fact, the sorbet is so good that it is great on its own if you would prefer to serve as a dessert.
I previously shared that we have partnered with PAMA Liqueur to celebrate summer parties, and we invite you to participate in the very fun contest they are hosting. It is really simple as well as fun. Head over to PAMA Liqueur to learn more about their Celebrate Summer Contest, and to enter the contest for a chance to win one of these fun prizes.
