Create an easy but elegant dessert by filling your champagne glasses (or wine goblets) with 3 or 4 different flavors and colors of sorbet. Even supermarket brands taste good, but if you can, buy specialty brands in flavors like apple mint or pear cognac. It’s all the more special for your guests. For something really special, get the real champagne and wine sorbets from Wine Cellar Sorbets—read our review. Serve with a fancy cookie and garnish with something interesting—a blackberry or a sprig of rosemary. Note: As you’re scooping sorbet for six or eight people, things can start to melt down. You can scoop balls in advance and keep them on covered plates or in containers in the freezer; then assemble quickly in the goblets and serve. Don’t pre-assemble and freeze in the goblets because moisture will condense on the glass when you remove them to room temperature.
