Orange Float Spritz Prosecco Cocktail Overview

We recently featured a recipe for making your own Orangecello and what better way to celebrate than with a cocktail? This is not just any cocktail, but one that will really treat you and your guests. We use our Orangecello recipe (or you might be able to find it at the liquor store) and combine it with prosecco and some orange sherbet to make a unique and fun drink. Quite a bit is going on in this drink, but it is still simple and really has a delicious flavor.

Homemade Orangecello

I would push you to check out our homemade Orangecello recipe, but you should also be able to find something similar at a quality liquor store near you. Making your own orangecello and limoncello is a fun way to make something special.

Can I Make a Lemon Cocktail?

This recipe easily translates into a great limoncello and lemon sherbet recipe. Just trade out the appropriate ingredients and you make a wholly different, but equally delicious, flavor profile.

What Kind of Prosecco Should I Use?

Save the expensive stuff for a different day! We are adding a ton of sweet flavoring to this drink, so the intricate flavors that come with someone who really is into prosecco will disappear. Do you have a Costco membership? They have a really delicious and inexpensive Kirkland brand prosecco that is great for this recipe. Really, any standard prosecco will work.

Orange Float Spritz Prosecco Cocktail Process Description

Process Description for making the orange sherbet prosecco cocktail

  1. Adding Orange Sherbet and Orangecello to the bottom of a champagne glass.
  2. Topping with prosecco.
  3. The cocktail will bubble. It is almost as if the sherbet reacts with the prosecco in a way that makes it bubble a little extra. Just take your time with this. I think the bubbles are a bit pretty.

Orange Float Spritz Prosecco Cocktail Tips Summary

  • You don’t need to buy expensive prosecco for this recipe. If you have a Costco membership, the Kirkland brand prosecco is delicious for a recipe like this.
  • You can use any glass, but we chose champagne, as we liked the aesthetic. It did make it a little tough to scoop in the sherbet, but I still like the look.
  • You can easily turn this into a lemon drink by using Limoncello and lemon sherbet.
  • Use the amount of sherbet that you feel is appropriate. This doesn’t have to be exact. The summary of this recipe is that we are adding some tasty sweet stuff to prosecco.

We are really glad we have been able to put our orangecello to use in a way other than just a straight liqueur and this cocktail is totally worth the effort. It is really a dessert in of itself and a delicious reminder of the finest things in life!

    How come I’ve never heard of orangecello! Now I need some! I’ve never had a cocktail with sherbet in it, either and now I cannot live another day without one.

      It does take a minute to make (or find) the orangecello, but it is a fun drink.
