New York may be known for the famous New Year's Eve ball drop, but here in Sarasota, we're pretty partial to downtown's midnight pineapple drop. So we love this cocktail from our friends at Orange Octopus, inspired by our region's festivities—not only because it's delicious, but because it's dead easy. Just grab a bottle of bubbly and a pint of sorbet and you're all set. Simple, sweet, festive—the perfect way to usher in a new year.
