Top Review by Calee

Outstanding colorful parfait. All the things I love fruit, lemon sorbet and asti spumate I couldnt find any lemon sorbet so I made some, the sorbet had lemon zest and I found it enhanced the fruit so much and seemed to balance the sweetness of the asti spumante. Not only great for everyday but for a special event as well! Thanks Annacia.
