I'm not a big sorbet person - I'll always choose ice cream over sorbet- but this lemon sorbet is just the thing to enjoy in these last hot days of summer. Of course, it's from my favorite ice cream cookbook, The Perfect Scoop by David Lebovitz. It's sweet and lemony and "puckery" as Lebovitz describes it. I added the optional 1/4 cup sugar to make it a little sweeter, but it was still a whole lot of lemon!
My 7-year-old said, "this is just like eating lemonade." Her observation couldn't be more on-target - it is just like frozen, yummy lemonade. Perfect for hot late-summer days.
On a hot day, which would you prefer to have.......ice cream or sorbet?
