Raspberry Rosé Sorbet |

It’s already August, you guys. August. Where has this summer gone? In just a few weeks everyone is going to be all excited about boots, sweaters, and PSLs and I’m going to be over here fighting back tears. Because summer should never, ever end.

But alas, that’s not how the world works. So until the seasons change you’ll find me soaking up every bit of summer I can. And you can count on me churning up a fresh batch of this raspberry rosé sorbet every weekend till Labor Day.

It’s a very simple recipe— just raspberries, rosé wine, and a little sugar. Mix it all together, churn it in an ice cream machine, and then throw it in the freezer to firm up. If you don’t have an ice cream machine, maybe this is the summer you get one? It’s totally worth it and I promise you’ll love it.

This sorbet is best served on warm summer nights, after the kids go to bed, with a little extra rosé poured over the top.

Tip: The best way to store ice cream and sorbets

>> Store ice cream and sorbets in a sturdy airtight container with minimal headspace (this one is great).

>> Avoid putting ice cream or sorbet in the door of your freezer where temperatures fluctuate, and the thawing and refreezing of your ice cream can make it icy and grainy.

>> Place a piece of plastic wrap directly on the surface of the ice cream, which will prevent ice crystals from forming and will keep funky freezer odors at bay. This is particularly helpful as you eat the ice cream, increasing the air within the storage container.

>> Enjoy homemade ice cream and sorbets as quickly as possible. They’ll be at their best 1-3 days after you make them.

Raspberry Rose Wine
A light and refreshing sorbet made with fresh raspberries and rosé wine.
Yield: 1 quart
  • 2 cups (500 ml) dry rosé wine
  • ⅔ cup (133 grams) granulated sugar
  • 3 cups (360 grams) raspberries, fresh or frozen
  • Additional rosé wine, for serving (optional)
  1. In a medium saucepan, bring the rosé wine and sugar just to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Remove from heat, add the raspberries, and let cool to room temperature. Purée the mixture in a blender or food processor and then press through a fine mesh strainer to remove the seeds. Chill the mixture thoroughly in the fridge, about 2-3 hours.
  2. Freeze in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Sorbet will be very soft. Remove from the ice cream machine, transfer to a covered container and freeze for at least 2 hours until firm.

    Annalise, this sorbet looks magical! What a wonderful combination of flavors with the rosé and raspberries… I have got to try this sometime this summer. That is, if I don't drink all the rosé first! 🙂 Thanks for sharing.
