Here's to the best toast of all time.
Hi, my name is Emily, and I've never liked champagne.
I didn't like it when I was 17 and my mom let me take a sip of her's at a New Years Eve party, and I didn't like it when I was 21 and someone gave me a bottle of it for my birthday. I've tried all the different flavors and colors but none of it tastes good to me.
Basically, I'm failing at being a classy adult.
Though it isn't surprising, I really thought my taste buds would become more refined as I got older. I'd develop a craving for things like bitter red wine and caviar rather than Cheez-Its and warm beer. But I'm 23 now, and I still hate almost everything "real" adults seem to love.
I have the food bloggers of the world to thank for taking matters into their own hands and making adulting fun. From boozey popsicles to alcohol-soaked candy, these creative drunk geniuses have figured out how to put alcohol in nearly everything.
What can I say? It's an exciting time to be alive.
The latest and greatest recipe comes from The Bewitchin' Kitchen, and is one that might have me be rethinking my stance on champagne. They're called champagne floats, and they sound delicious.
In what could quite possibly be the easiest drink recipe known to man — other than taking it straight from the bottle — the only ingredients you need are three scoops of your choice of sorbet and your choice of sparkling wine.
Then comes the exciting part. Scoop out the sorbet, put it in a glass (something cute so you can Instagram it, obviously) and pour in the champagne.
And BOOM. You're done.
Now the author of the recipe recommends only a little bit a champagne to avoid it looking "less like swamp water." But if you're like me and you're just looking for another way to get turnt, allow me to offer an alternative.
Pour in a little champagne, take a photo, and then fill the rest of the glass up. That way you get something cute and classy to brag about to your friends AND you can still get as boozey as you want.
So being a classy adult can be fun, as long as you know the short cuts.
