    Raspberry-Rosemary Sorbet

    Tart-sweet raspberries make a surprisingly good partner for fresh rosemary, probably because this sorbet only calls for a little bit of the powerful herb. It adds a lovely, gentle pine note that transforms the sorbet into something really special. Try dropping a small scoop into a glass of sparkling wine for a knock-out (adult) sorbet float!

    Strawberry Lemon Sorbet

    Use the reddest, ripest berries you can find for this old-fashioned favorite. The sweetness of the berries is heightened by the lemon zest and lemon verbena, but if you don’t have the latter, it will still taste great.

    Pear & Champagne Sorbet

    Give the kids a scoop of ice cream; this autumn-leaning sorbet is strictly for the grown-ups. It’s not just the Champagne and Poire William eau de vie that make it so; the flavor―deepened by crushed juniper berries― is quite nuanced and lovely. Tuck this one away for fall (if you can wait!).
