Peach and Prosecco Ice

Wow, I didn't even realize that the SLW theme had changed before I made my New Year's cocktail. Quite a few problems again here. The one I'm most disappointed in is how quickly condensation formed. You really lose a lot of detail wrt the bubbles on the sparkling wine. I suppose I should have done this in an airconditioned room but this is the only place where natural light is strongest. I could maybe have applied surfactant on the outside, but the only readily available one here is soap and I don't know how to make it ungreasy-looking. The shape of the scoop of peach ice is not as spherical as I would have liked, but for the hardship I went through getting it right, I'm satisfied with it.

 

I would have wanted the background to be more indoorsy (party-like) but we have that problem I noted earlier regarding the amount of light available. The white on the bottom is quite jarring given the contrast. It also makes the flute lose its (uh) bottom.
