MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 2, 2010

"This is really refreshing. However, it's more of a sorbet than a sherbet; as sherbets have some form of dairy product in them (milk, cream, half-and-half, buttermilk, etc).

Also, I used about a 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice plus an additional 1 T. sugar in place of the cranberry juice."

MY REVIEW

"You might try lemon or lime juice but I'm not sure of the amount. All you need to do is give the watermelon some kick."

MY REVIEW

"Can anyone suggest an alternative juice to cranberry? I don't always have cranberry juice available."
