Drinking glass condensation comes a-runnin’ when it sees that Fizzy Frozen Raspberry Peach Float is in town for the summer, and ever since I invented it three days ago, so do I! What we have here is not so much an invention as a template for soda floats besides the root beer and vanilla variety. Sorbet is a concentrated, dairy-free blast of fruit flavor, while recently frozen pieces of fresh fruit add some texture and additional coldness to the sweet and refreshing concept of a float.
One of my favorite combos is represented here in the Fizzy Frozen Raspberry Peach Float, but feel free to forge ahead with the Fizzy Frozen Blackberry Lemon Float, Fizzy Frozen Mango Lime Float or any other Fizzy Frozen Float you can dream up with your local selection of sorbets and frozen fruit. And if you could ever possibly want more than that, sneak in a shot of whatever you got!

She shares other (a)musings at Deep Fried Epiphany and dedicates this post to trying to explain drinking glass condensation to a 12-year-old after being six years removed from science class. It’s a truly difficult task.
Fizzy Frozen Raspberry Peach Float
Two large scoops raspberry sorbet
1/2 peach, sliced and frozen for at least an hour; coat in a little bit of lemon juice to prevent browning
About 1 cup your favorite lemon-lime soda or fruity seltzer
Optional: One shot peach schnapps or other booze for funsies
Optional: Mint leaves, for garnish
Place sorbet and peach slices into large glass. Fill glass to the top with soda or seltzer and alcohol, if using. Garnish with mint, if using. All participants: Enjoy, preferably with both spoon and straw.
