Easy Berry Sorbet
Cool off with this summer with a bowl of Easy Berry Sorbet. With just a few simple ingredients you’ll be enjoying a cool and refreshing glass of berry sorbet.
Sorbet [sor-BAY] is French for “sherbet,” which Italians call sorbetto. Sorbet is sometimes distinguished from sherbet by the fact that it never contains milk. It’s also often a softer consistency than sherbet. Savory or lightly sweetened sorbets are often served either as a palate refresher between courses or as a dessert. Sorbets are sometimes called ices or granitas, though both of these mixtures are generally more granular or slushy in texture than a sorbet.
This recipe calls for a small amount of berry flavored vodka. This is totally optional. The reason for adding vodka is really a simple one. Since vodka or alcohol doesn’t ‘freeze,’ I like to add a small amount to sorbets. This will give the sorbet a slushy consistency. You might be thinking then, the sorbet in the photos above doesn’t look ‘slushy’ and you’d be right. Before serving this delightful concoction to my ‘picky’ hubby, I whipped a small amount of raspberry sherbet into the easy berry sorbet. My ‘picky’ hubby give it his stamp of approval. Alleluia!
