Summer is here and so is our desire for ice-creams, sorbets and cold desserts! Today we have a recipe for a deliciously refreshing Malbec and raspberry sorbet, inspired by the great pairing of this Argentinian wine with berries. If you think wine in a sorbet is a little odd, trust me on this one: Malbec pairs extremely well with raspberries, you will love it. You only need four ingredients: wine, sugar, water and raspberries, so make sure to give this one a try and cool down with a scoop or two of this boozy dessert.
Preparation Time: 10-15 min | Freezing Time: 3-4h | Serves: About 1 litre |
What you’ll need:
- 400g fresh raspberries
- 200g sugar
- 200ml water
- 200ml Malbec wine
- Start by boiling the water in a small pot. Once that is done, remove it from the heat and add the sugar, stirring through until it’s completely dissolved.
- Cool down this sugar syrup (either in the freezer for a bit, or in an ice bath).
- Once the syrup is cold, place it in a food processor, along with the raspberries and the wine. Blitz everything until nice and smooth.
- You can either sieve this mixture to get rid of the seeds, or just use it as it is if you don’t mind them. I usually sieve mine for a smoother texture.
- Turn it in an ice-cream machine according to the manufacturer’s instructions OR place it in a freezable container and then put it directly in the freezer, making sure you stir it every 30-45 minutes to prevent ice crystals from forming.
- Once it’s solid, it’s all ready to eat.
