I finally had enough room in my freezer for the bowl of my new ice cream maker, so this was the recipe I chose for it's "maiden voyage". I used sour cherry juice for this, although the sweetness of the sugar syrup pretty much canceled out the sour part. Loved how silky this is once frozen, not icy at all. Maybe it's my homemade frozen dessert inexperience speaking, but I found that this melts really quickly, although that's easily remedied by just eating it faster, lol. The sugar syrup makes this really sweet, so this might be a bit cloying with an already-sweet juice, but I bet this would be a perfect vehicle for some more tart fruit flavors (lime, grapefruit, cranberry, etc). I wonder what kind of caipirinha or mojito sorbet this would make? A project for another day, but I'll definitely be using this recipe again this summer. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2012
Wow!! This was so easy to put together! We tried it with lemonade. I'm interested to try it with the Smirnoff since I love those!! We really enjoyed this, Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Fall 08'
