Raspberry Sorbet... not a Beret...

I absolutely adore ice-cream and sorbet.  I can eat it anytime of the year and I think that there is nothing better than a refreshing sorbet to finish off a meal.  When we got our amazing Kitchen Aid stand mixer, I was pretty excited at the thought of getting the ice-cream maker attachment.  To our fortune, Macy's in San Francisco were having a sale on most attachments so we bought up big, including the ice-cream maker!  Yes, we did manage to bring our Kitchen Aid loot back to Australia without too many hassles! 

*note - if you purchase an ice-cream attachment from the USA, you will need to order in Australia a different part for the drive, it costs about $45.  You will not be able to use the attachment without this!

We used the recipe from the Kitchen Aid booklet included with the attachment and it is very easy.  Basically it is raspberries, sugar and water.  There is some preperation and you will need to push the raspberries through a fine sieve to remove all the seeds but other than that, this is such a quick recipe with an awesome outcome!

We served the luscious sorbet at our National Sparkling Red day dinner party and it certainly was one of the hits of the night!  The amount that was made, served 5 guests comfortably and there was enough left over to enjoy it as a Raspberry Sorbet Vodka Shot also!

This involved a tiny melon ball size of raspberry sorbet into a shot glass with some Belvedere vodka poured over.  The sorbet acts as the ice in the shot... totally delicious!

I think that our little Kitchen Aid ice-cream maker will be getting quite the work out all year round!
