Cran-Raspberry Sorbet Bellini – For Bev’s Baby Shower
Weverly Beverly Boo,
We have a surprise for you!
We’ve gathered together
to share our great pleasure
of being your friend,
until the very end.
So let’s crack the bubbly
and toast to Will, Natalie and YOU!
I tried to find a way to rhyme with “bubbly” for like 10 minutes here…I never claimed to be Doctoress Suess, so forgive the unrhyming rhyme. My high school english teacher should have prepared me better, because I’m sure this is a legit poem somewhere in the literature-sphere.
So uhhh, SURPRISE!!
You know of my expoentienally increasing baby fever, so this gave me great reason to explode my hormones all over the place in someone’s direction, because I’m pretty sure my husband can’t take any more of my fever being directed anywhere in his general vicinity.
Being nearly 9 months sober, I wanted to gather you a non-cocktail cocktail to celebrate with. But being the Girl Scout that I am, it can be made in boozy or non-boozy form for someone in your adorably round and “OMG Can I touch The Belly!!” condition, or it can be made ultra sloshy for you as soon as those two adorable squish faced, perfectly quirky (if they take after their dear sainted mother) and blonde bebes make their debut.
Drink up soon lovely, after 9 months of double bun baking you have EARNED IT!!
Thank you so much for being my friend, my daily source of inspiration and hilarity, and for the impending onslaught of 237 daily IG updates of those two that I now I will keep me plastered to my IG on a daily basis. Because my baby-fever is not out of control or anything right now…

This post couldn’t be any cuter, and I could not be craving a fabu bellini anymore if I tried! Beautiful!
Bellinis are my favorite party drink. This one is perfect for this time of year. I love it.

I wish I had at least 2 or 3 of these in front of me, right now! How refreshing! pinned
So beautiful!! I’d be real happy holding a glass of this.
Can’t go wrong with a bellini….and love this twist you created!! Dying to try it!
I love this so much!! yay!!
What a gorgeous drink!!
I think everything posted was actually very reasonable. However, what about this?
what if you wrote a catchier title? I ain’t suggesting your content
isn’t solid., but what if you added something to maybe
get a person’s attention? I mean Country Cleaver Cranberry Sorbet Bellini is a little boring.
You might look at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create article titles to get viewers to open the links.
You might add a related video or a related picture or two to grab people excited about
what you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it could make your posts a
little bit more interesting.

What kind of alcohol could you add? I have the sparkling wine and sorbet, would vodka or rum be good in it?
