Have Leftover Champagne? Make it into a Frozen Margarita

Put any leftover Champagne to work in this indulgent slushy that’s like a cross of a frozen Margarita with a Sgroppino, an Italian classic made with lemon sorbet, vodka and Prosecco. (Yes, you can put bubbly in the blender. Just a couple of ounces of fizz won’t cause an explosion, promise.)

Flat Champagne would also work.
