An unusual sorbet that will impress your guests. Prep time does not include chilling time or overnight freezing time. To cool the sugar syrup mixture quickly, place bowl in larger bowl of ice and stir occasionally. It should be cold in about 15 minutes.
- 1⁄2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup riesling wine
- 1⁄2 cup frozen raspberries
- 1 tablespoon superfine sugar
- Heat granulated sugar, the water, and 1/2 cup wine in medium noncorrosive saucepan to boiling, stirring to dissolve sugar. Boil 3 minutes without stirring. Pour into small bowl and let cool to room temperature. Refrigerate until cold, about 3 hours. (Tip: To cool the sugar syrup mixture quickly, place bowl in larger bowl of ice and stir occasionally. It should be cold in about 15 minutes.).
- Stir remaining wine into sugar syrup, pour into 8" cake pan, and freeze overnight.
- The next day, thaw raspberries in bowl in refrigerator. Puree in food processor or blender, then press through fine sieve to remove seeds. Stir in superfine sugar.
- Process wine ice and raspberry puree in food processor or blender until smooth. Return to baking pan and freeze until firm, 2-3 hours, stirring once halfway through. Serve in wineglasses.
This was very tasty. I'm not usually a big fan of raspberry flavored stuff, but the wine and the raspberry went well together. It turned out more like a slush, maybe because I used fresh raspberries, but it was really good.
