Lemonade Iced Tea Sorbet.


My mom was nice enough to buy me an ice cream maker a few weeks ago. I had bought her the same one back at Christmas and she loved it so much that she thought I should have one too. I can’t even tell you how excited I was to get it. I’ve been pulling ice cream recipes out of magazines for months hoping that I would get one eventually.

I came home that night, washed everything out, cranked the freezer up as high as it would go, and hoped that inner piece would freeze quickly. I ended up staying awake most of the night waiting for my first batch of sorbet but it was so worth it. I just wish I would’ve remembered to turn the freezer back down. The container my sorbet went into eventually cracked. Poo.

The Lemonade Iced Tea Sorbet was lovely though. Being from Alabama, I’m a sweet tea kind of girl. No lemon, please. But I really enjoyed this sorbet. It was tart but still sweet. It’s definitely a keeper, even if the husband refused to even try it.

    This looks so appealing to me. I’m a southerner as well and love iced tea. Unfortunately, lifes circumstances has forced me to make mine with Splenda, but it’s still pretty good. The sorbet looks lovely.
