Yes, we know – it’s winter time and sorbets are meant to be enjoyed during a sunnier season, but you should all know by now that we don’t like to play by anyone’s rules. So here’s a recipe that lets us indulge a little more in our pastel dreams - ’cause we clearly don’t want to wake up anytime soon.

 

 

 

For Watermelon Sorbet:

What you need:
1 1/2 cups proseco (sparkling wine)
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons agave nectar
2  cups fresh watermelon juice, run through a sieve
3 basil leaves, minced (optional)

 

What you do:
In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the proseco and agave nectar.  Bring to a rapid boil, stirring occasionally, for 2-3 minutes.  Let cool a few minutes.  

Once cooled, add watermelon juice and basil leaves to the proseco mixture, stir until well incorporated. Place in the freezer for 2-3 hours, or until chilled.  Pour watermelon mixture into the basin of an ice cream maker and use according to manufactures instructions.  Spoon into a freezer safe container, and freeze for up to 5 hours.  Garnish with mint and serve. 


 

 

For Kiwi Sorbet:

What you need:
2 cups proseco (sparkling wine)
1/4 cup + 3 tablespoons agave nectar

 

2  cups fresh kiwi juice, run through a sieve 

What you do:
In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the proseco and agave nectar.  Bring to a rapid boil, stirring occasionally, for 2-3 minutes.  Let cool a few minutes.
Once cooled, add kiwi juice to the proseco mixture, stir until well incorporated. Place in the freezer for 2-3 hours, or until chilled.  Pour kiwi mixture into the basin of an ice cream maker and use according to manufactures instructions.  Spoon into a freezer safe container, and freeze for up to 5 hours.  Garnish with mint and serve.
