Reviews for Strawberry & Wine Sorbet
"Good ingredients, a little too much sugar for my taste. I altered the procedures by simply preparing fresh strawberries by cleaning, removing tops, cutting off bottom points where so many seeds are concentrated and then FREEZING the strawberries in plastic ziplock bags. This eliminates all the muss and fuss and, once the sugar syrup has cooled, simply blend the ingredients together for an instant slushy drink. Different wines can be substituted. Perfect for a hot weather cooler."
"Really good. Like a frozen daiquiri. Yummy"
"This was delicious, and so easy to make. It was a bit too sweet for me, so I think in the future I will cut down on the sugar and add more lemon juice. Maybe test out different wines, too"
"delicious and easy! I like to use strawberry sparkling wine to make it."
