If you want to serve an elegant, dazzling and delectable cocktail at your next girls’ event, try this. The combination of sweet, bubbly champagne with a kick of vodka and a blast of cold strawberry sorbet impresses every time.

I’ve had a version of this cocktail at a range of special occasions, from baby showers and bridal luncheons to jewelry parties, and it was definitely the highlight of most conversations.

This drink is also perfect if you like dessert but don’t want to overindulge. Sorbet is a non-dairy product similar to Italian ice that is dense and packed with flavor. It is a non-fat or low-fat alternative to ice cream so it is, in a way, healthy.

As the sorbet melts, the mixture turns slushy, so you don’t have to use ice that will dilute your drink. Spring for something a little different this season and create this simple but fancy cocktail for your girlfriends (but guys really do like it too!).

Sandi Grigg

Growing up in a small town in the foothills of North Carolina, Sandi always dreamed of living on the coast. In her youth, she was always by the water; she was raised tending a big garden and stomping around in the creek. She spent her adolescent days on a Jet Ski or fishing on Lake James, N.C., and she and her friends would camp and hike the Linville Gorge. Attending the University of North Carolina at Charlotte she felt like she was getting out of my small-town box and living the city life; at the same time, she was getting a little closer to the ocean. Moving to Wilmington has been a dream come true, and the life she has created has been a blessing. She enjoys kayaking the Cape Fear, fishing the shores of Carolina Beach, and picking up seashells and shark’s teeth wherever she is. At home, she loves to cook and play with her dogs in the backyard. She also enjoys DIY home improvement endeavors. No outdoor shower, fire pit or flower bed is too big of a job! Being a part of the North Brunswick Magazine and South Brunswick Magazine team has taught Sandi that you really can enjoy your career.
