What is a Prosecco float?

A prosecco float is prosecco served over either sorbet or sorbetto. This is an adult version of a float which is traditionally soda and vanilla ice cream. The prosecco is bubbly like the soda and the sorbet is an icy treat like the ice cream. 

You might have a hard time finding sorbet in the grocery stores. It seems sorbet has been replaced by diet ice creams. I was still able to find sorbetto thought. Sorbetto is a mix between sorbet and gelato.
