Simplicity can amount to something very big when you hit the right combination of flavors.

Take store-bought lemon sorbet, fresh or frozen blueberries and simple syrup (an equal mixture of water and sugar cooked together), for example. When you pour freshly popped prosecco over them, a fantastic drink (or maybe dessert?) awaits you.

It is a refreshingly delicious (and adult) approach to the much-loved root beer float, but it comes with a lightness you can enjoy without getting filled up.
