Sorbet for breakfast? Why not?

This citrusy bellini variation is easy to make and refreshing to drink, lightly tart and just a little more sophisticated than the standard peach version.

Feel free to garnish with an additional scoop of lemon sorbet or a few raspberries when they're in season, or slice up some kumquats and drop them in each glass.

This drink is adapted from 101 Champagne Cocktails by Kim Haasarud.
