    Truth be told, you will probably be making a sparkling wine float as opposed to an actual champagne float. Wine can only be called champagne when it comes from the champagne region of France. When it is made in other areas, it is known as a methode champenoise, or put more simply, a sparkling wine.

    Sparkling wines are made by allowing the last stage of fermentation to happen inside the bottle, resulting in a build up gases and making your wine, well, bubbly.

    For a Champagne Float, use any choice of ice cream, although I prefer a Vanilla Bean, and any fruit. Personally, I like raspberries and strawberries.
