It’s the perfect, stress-free addition to your holiday menu! Gather your friends and family around the table, pour a glass of wine, and serve up something amazing. 

So, what is a sorbet?

Also called "Italian ice" or "water ice," sorbet is a non-dairy frozen dessert made from puréed fruit or fruit juice mixed with water, sugar, and sometimes liquor. Usually stirred while frozen, it becomes nicely cold and creamy.

The secret to a perfect sorbet lies in the quality of the fruits, so be sure to pick the freshest you can find!

We recommend using an ice cream machine for these recipes, but if you don’t have one you can place your bowl of sorbet mix into the freezer and “churn” it every 20 minutes until you reach your desired consistency.
