Simply Sublime Raspberry Sorbet
What are you doing to beat the extreme heat we’re having this August? A nice way to cool down is with an ice cold sorbet for a most refreshing treat on these hot August nights. This simply sublime raspberry tea sorbet adds a little surprise twist with the addition of fresh brewed tea to the mix.
You can add any type of flavoring you wish to this delightful little recipe. The basic ingredient of a sorbet is fruit juice or puree, wine, spirit or liqueur, or an infusion such as tea or mint, to which a sugar syrup is added.
The mixture is then frozen and should not be beaten during freezing. Beating it during freezing makes it a granita. Sorbet does not contain any fat or egg yolk. The addition of milk fat makes it a sherbet.
Just keep in mind, if you do add an alcohol based flavoring, it will lower the freezing temperature resulting in a softer sorbet. What I love about sorbets is that you don’t need an ice cream maker and they are dairy free. Sorbets are so very simple to make.
