Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place watermelon cubes and raspberries in blender; process until smooth. Pour juice through a sieve; discard pulp.
  2. Combine sugar and water in small saucepan. Heat, stirring constantly, just until sugar dissolves. Set syrup aside and allow to cool slightly.
  3. Stir syrup and lemon juice into watermelon juice mixture. Pour into freezer container, cover and freeze until firm.
  4. Using ice cream scoop, spoon mixture into tall glasses. Pour 3 to 4 tablespoons strawberry-flavored water over frozen juice in each glass. Serve immediately.
  5. VARIATION: To serve as sorbet, freeze juice mixture in 8 inch square dish. Omit strawberry-flavored carbonated water. Using a small scoop, shape frozen juice mixture into balls and arrange in individual serving dishes.

hmm I made a review yesterday but I guess it failed... Anyway this was fantastic! A great sweet but not overly sweet drink, and simple too! I liked it both as a sorbet as well as with the carbonated water. I also found out that mint goes well in this through my garnish lol. It is a great looking drink too, especially using a melon baller to create a bunch of balls in the cup! A great summer drink for sure!

This is my first PAC recipe and let me just say WOW... I'm so glad I decided to participate in this! Unfortunately because of all of the rain we've had this summer the raspberry crop has been relatively poor, so I had to substitute blackberries instead. It came out wonderful. I did end up letting the sorbet mixture freeze overnight, since it was still a little sloshy in the middle after about 4-5 hours or so, but I imagine this all depends on what kind of a container you're using to freeze it with as well. Next time I'll probably just run the whole thing through my ice cream maker to freeze it a bit more evenly anyway. It'll be a delightful treat to serve with my second PAC experiment for my in-laws tonight! (see what kind of faith I put in my twins? hehe) Thanks a ton for posting this. :)
