wine sorbet!

We had wine sorbet for the very first time in Napa during our 1 year anniversary (a month ago) and it was totally delicious! As soon as we got home, I started researching different sorbet recipes to make an identical batch (*wink*).

I found a recipe that sort of worked after I modified it a bit. For starters, the original recipe asked for a full bottle of wine (750 ml) and I felt that was too much – you don’t want the wine to overpower the sorbet. So, I used 2.5 cups of wine (600 ml) instead of a full bottle. It also asked for raspberries (only) but I remember the original flavor (will never forget it, haha) from the one we tasted in Napa – it was a definitely a mixture of different berries for sure!

Here’s the quick and easy recipe – made in 10 minutes!  The freezing and setting of the sorbet is what takes longer – be patient my fellow wine friends because it is totally worth it!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (200 g) sugar
  • 3/4 cup (180 ml) water
  • 2.5 cups (600 ml) of fruity red wine, such as Merlot, Zinfandel, Beaujolais, or a red blend
  • 3 cups (15 ounces/400 g) frozen mixed berries

 

Prep & Cooking

  1. In a medium saucepan, bring the sugar, water, and red wine to a boil
  2. Let the mixture boil for 1 minute, stirring to dissolve the sugar
  3. Remove from the heat and add the frozen mixed berries
  4. Cover and let steep for 1 hour
  5.  Purée the berries to remove the seeds by using a rubber spatula, pressing the mixture through a mesh strainer set over a medium bowl
  6. Cover and put into freezer until thoroughly chilled
  7. bona-petite!
