If you're not a moscato girl but still want cupcakes, check out this recipe from The First Year Blog. Instead of incorporating red wine into the batter, blogger Beth creates a wine syrup by heating wine and sugar, which she eventually uses as frosting. Yum! Get the recipe at The First Year Blog.

Our mouths water just thinking about these dessert shooters from Sugar Spun Run. With the richness of cheesecake in a guilt-free size, they are the perfect party treat.

Champagne Floats

9 / 21


If you loved root beer floats as a kid (or as an adult), you're going to love this treat. It's pretty much the same idea, except instead of using root beer, you use sparkling wine. Randa at The Bewitchin' Kitchen used sorbet in her creations for a light, fruity treat, but you could make this work with any of your favorite ice cream flavors.
