Spiked floats all around!

We’ve got embarrassingly easy (!!!) boozy little floats right here for Oscars night! Pair it with a crunchy snack and you are SET.

Every year I want to host a big, fun Oscars party and every year… I don’t do it. So I’m doing it virtually and begging you to make a prosecco sorbet cocktail on Sunday night with me. Waaahoo. Internet generation unite.

Here’s a little secret: I don’t love raspberry things. I don’t love raspberry flavored things. I like fresh raspberries but they are not my number one choice in fruit. If I’m being REAL here, I mostly chose raspberry sorbet because the color is pink pink pink.


You witnessed my transformation years ago to being quite “meh” about lemon desserts and now I omgLOVE lemon desserts, so it’s very possible that might happen here. The lemon + raspberry sorbet combo is divine. It is seriously fantastic and flavorful.

And p.s. I like to use a prosecco on the drier side because the sorbet is freaking sweet. You need something with a bit of a bite to balance out the flavor. And you know I’ve got some sweet teeth!

Now what I really want to know is are you more excited for the movies or for the fashion at the Academy Awards? I’m a little bit of both, I suppose.

But I’m absolutely saddened by the fact that I have not yet seen La La Land. In fact, I haven’t seen any movie in a theater since I had Max (with the exception of Sing that we took him to see over Christmas!) and the last time I was at the movies? When I was pregnant and saw Gone Girl with my cousin Lacy!

Even though I actually like to go to the movies, whenever I have free time these days, there are SO many other things I want to do besides go sit in a dark theater without internet access for three hours. You know? I’m looking at you shoe shopping/napping/trashy magazine reading/Target bingeing.

Before we had Max, Eddie and I would occasionally get in the routine of going to a movie mid-week, which was such a treat because we obsessively consider all weeknights to be “school nights,” almost never do anything really FUN on these nights and go to bed at a normal (well, okay, not I) hour.

We didn’t do it every week, but it was lovely when we did. I totally want to bring that back!

Other movies I’m dying to see are Hidden Figures, Jackie and Arrival. I will admit though that ever since having a kid, I only want to see mostly fluffy comedies because otherwise I’m ridden with anxiety over the sadness or scariness of the film. I.am.a.child.

So I guess what really matters aside from boozy floats: who will be the best dressed?! But really.
