This sorbet was so good. I received requests to make it for some people who thought it was better than any they had ever bought. I used more lemon zest than it called for.

Instead of using the 1 cup of water, I used buttermilk for tang as well as cut some of the sweet taste. also, I used our ice cream freezer instead of putting it into the freezer. Made it taste more like sherbet instead of a sorbet. YUMMY!

Great flavor, would've given 5 stars, but this recipe was way too sweet. Will definitely make again only next time I'll use half the sugar
