I'm definitely a fan of rich desserts, but during the summer there's nothing like a sweet and refreshing dessert to finish a dinner. Sorbets are easy to make, and are amazingly delicious. The combination of lemon and mint create a vibrant refreshing flavor perfect for a warm summer day.
Ice cream makers are a great tool to shorten the amount of time you have to wait for the sorbet to be ready (my maker takes about 30 minutes to create sorbet). If you don't have one, you can put the sorbet mix into the freezer and it will be ready within 24 hours.
Prep Time: 1 hour
2 cups water
1 cup sugar
1 cup lemon juice
~10 mint leaves diced
1. In a small saucepan, heat the water and sugar over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved.
2. Remove from heat, and add the lemon juice. Place into the refrigerator to fully cool.
3. Once the mix is cool, pour into an ice cream maker, and add the mint leaves. Let the maker run for 30 minutes, or until the sorbet has fully formed.
