rose petal sorbet and champagne

Sorbet of Roses

Serve this sorbet in flute champagne glasses layered with tiny white or pink meringues and either fresh or crystallised pink or red rose petals. So impressive and so simple.  Or, even easier, put a dollop of sorbet in a pretty glass and pour champagne over it. Decorate with pink or red fruits- a sort of adult float!
