Blood Orange Sorbetto Cocktails remind me of early mornings on the Cape May Point just before sunrise. I hear my grandfather’s voice telling me to slow down, to absorb everything the seashore has to offer. I can vividly see the iridescent pearly pink and white seashells we gathered. I can hear waves crashing against the bunker as he shushed me to be still and listen, to slow my frantic childhood pace, darting from this treasure to that. I hear seagulls calling in the distance as they dive bomb into the ocean. If we’re in just the right place I can ever so faintly hear the sound of the ferry pulling into shore. My grandfather has been gone over a decade but those memories are still so vividly etched in my memory. Observe. Listen. Remember.
I came across Ciao Bella’s Sorbetto during a one day sale at Whole Foods. It was love at first sight and forever love at first bite. I came home, inspired to create a sweet summer cocktail with it. It wasn’t difficult. This sorbetto makes it almost too easy. A Blood Orange Sorbetto Cocktail with a splash of vodka and a fresh raspberry garnish (also on sale) was a beautiful ending to my day. You should be able to swap out the vodka for club soda for an alternative Blood Orange Sorbetto mocktail.
Blood Orange Sorbetto Cocktails would be perfect for a bridal shower, brunch, or dessert. The best part is that it is an easy cocktail recipe, requiring very little kitchen skills. Scoop. Measure. Pour. Enjoy!
