Ingredients

2 1/2 cups freshly squeezed orange juice (5 to 6 oranges)

1 orange, zested

1 cup half-and-half

1 cup superfine sugar

1 bottle sparkling wine or Champagne*

Strawberries, for garnish

*Non-alcoholic sparkling wine, sparkling cider, or ginger ale can be substituted.

Directions

  1. Put orange juice, zest, half-and-half, and sugar into a blender and process until the sugar has dissolved, about 30 seconds. Pour this mixture into a shallow pan and freeze until hard, 4 hours or overnight.
  2. Remove the frozen orange mixture from the freezer and let it sit to soften slightly, about 10 minutes. With a scoop or tablespoon, scrape out a small scoop and put it into a Champagne glass. Slowly fill the glass with Champagne and serve garnished with strawberries.
