Peach,Raspberry Rose’ Sorbet For Fiesta Friday #71

Sorbet

Sorbet

It has been a while since I have participated in Fiesta Friday, It’s about time I join the party again. Angie has been great, checking in on me and I so appreciate it. We are but a few short weeks away from the start of Summer and I thought I would bring a cooling, refreshing sorbet to the party. Now this is sorbet with a kick, it’s made with Rose’ and some fruit. It’s great on it’s own or made into an ice cold spritzer with some sparkling water or even add a scoop to some prosecco!! This week’s party is hosted by sweet Angie@The Novice Gardener and the lovely co hosts are Laurie @ ten.times.tea and Jhuls @ The Not So Creative Cook. Welcome Laurie, this is her first time hosting!!!

About a week ago Aleksandra a regular on Food52, a friend and author of the gorgeous (James Beard nominated) blog Three Little Halves posted a question on the Hotline asking for ideas on what to do with a bottle of Rose’ wine that she was not in love with to drink but wanted to use so as not to waste. We went back and forth she eventually decided on a jelly, I had suggested a sorbet. Inspired by our conversation I decided to make sorbet out of rose’. I used the great recipe by David Lebovitz for Rasberry Rose sorbet and changed it a bit using juicy ripe peaches along with the raspberry and a hint of orange (2 small pieces of tangerine skin).

Blended, strained and ready to chill

Peach,Raspberry Rose’ Sorbet

Adapted from a recipe by David Lebovitz

Serves 6-8 depending on serving size

2 cups rose’

2/3 cup sugar

3 cups raspberries and peaches

small piece of orange or tangerine peel

Pour the rose’ and sugar in a non reactive saucepan, bring to a boil and immediately removed from the heat. Add the raspberries, peaches and orange peel. Let sit until it reaches room temperature then blend until smooth. Pour through a sieve into a bowl or container and refrigerate until very cold.

Process using manufacturers directions in your ice cream maker.

Serve on it’s own as a palette cleansing sorbet or add a couple of scoops to sparkling water for a delicious and refreshing drink.

A great way to enjoy wine!!

  1. This is just the demand of the weather. I am in Dallas right now, looking for houses and I can totally use a scoop of that beauty in the hot 90 something temperature here! ❤️

  2. Ummmm, yummylicious! And the color is fantastic. BTW, any recommendations for a good ice cream maker?

    June 7, 2015
    • Thank you! I have a cuisinart that I have had for probably 5 or 6 years works great and very reliable, also won’t break the bank!

      June 7, 2015
      • Thanks!

        June 7, 2015
  3. Suzanne, i’m so excited about this recipe! I love sorbet, and i love pouring champagne (or other sparkling wine) over it. I’m positively giddy about this one! Mega-hugs! 😀

    June 7, 2015
    • Thank you I am going to do either pro secco or sparkling rose’ tonight. Thanks Teagan!

      June 7, 2015
      • My favorite summertime treat is spumante over strawberry sorbet… (Rolls eyes; melts into a puddle of drool.) 😀

        June 7, 2015
      • Yum!

        June 7, 2015

  6. Wonderful combination of flavors! 🙂

    June 7, 2015
  7. Great to see you creating again!!! Hugs to Nando.

    June 7, 2015
  8. Love a refreshing scoop of sorbet in the summer, peach, raspberry and rosé sounds especially delicious!

    June 7, 2015
    • Thank you, it’s wonderful. I am going to make more boozy sorbets, I make one from lemons/limes and campari that I love too!!

      June 7, 2015
  9. Love this for the summertime – with wine in it – double love 🙂

    June 7, 2015

    Just what we need in this weather. Looks gorgeously cool and soothing Suzanne!!

    June 7, 2015
  12. Oh Suzanne! What a great combination of flavors! I just have to try it this summer. What kind of an ice cream maker do you have? Ours is 30 years old! I’m hoping it would still work in those old ones.

    June 7, 2015
    • Wow 30 years old. Is it electric or hand crank? I have a cuisinart it’s great, inexpensive and a real work horse I’ve used it for almost 6 years now and it’s still cranking away

      June 7, 2015
      • Yes, we got it for a wedding present. It is electric, but you have to add ice and salt while making the ice cream. I have been wanting to get a cuisinart for awhile now, but decided to wait until we move next year as I don’t have any place to store it.

        June 7, 2015
      • I remember those and they should work for sorbet just fine. I remember my parents making ice cream with one of those.

        June 7, 2015
  13. Sorbet is just what the Doctor ordered for this fine, hot weekend! I just finished my Rose though so perhaps Lemon today. Love and kisses to Nando ( shhhh…Buddy is eating and p**ping again)! He is also wagging his tail and sleeping through the night! You understand the significance of this.

    June 7, 2015
    • That’s great about Buddy. I certainly do understand the significance of that and it’s like p…png gold! I am still struggling with Nando’s issues. Hoping Buddy keeps on eating and doing all he is supposed to do.

      June 7, 2015
  14. I have actually been looking for a good berry sorbet recipe. Thanks so much!

    June 7, 2015
    • You can use juice or even water instead of the wine it’s such a nice and easy recipe. Love it. Thanks Hilda.

      June 7, 2015
  15. This looks fantastic, I love the idea of a cleansing sorbet, refreshing, tasty and easy to make. Hugs to Nando and you!

    June 7, 2015
  16. This is a genius plan to use the leftover ?!!? rose. 🙂 The color is AMAZING! I wish it would warm up around here so that I had an excuse to make refreshing desserts!! 😉

    June 7, 2015
    • I know it’s warming up this week but last week was like Fall weather. Thanks so much Josette, it really is a great way to use that leftover Rose’.

      June 8, 2015
  17. Love sorbet. Even though I’m not so keen on certain wine. But I used to love sorbet and cava, which is how the Spanish have it sometimes. Well, in the Basque anyway. Really nice way to end a meal, if you’re not so keen on desserts.

    June 7, 2015
    • Thanks Johnny, this is like a sangria frozen. It’s really delicious, you know there is wine in it but the fruit makes it sweet and fruity. It really is a great sorbet and a lovely light dessert.

      June 8, 2015
  18. Thank you for the welcome! You’ve brought such a lovely refreshing dessert this week, and even provided a way to turn it into a drink as well! These are some great summer-y flavours…I wish I had some good peaches right now 🙂

    June 7, 2015
    • Thank you so much Laurie for hosting this week. So nice to meet you and I am so happy to know about your beautiful blog too, was lucky to get some gorgeous peaches for this they are not plentiful yet.

      June 8, 2015
  19. Oh so pretty in it’s colour Suzanne and I’m sure it tastes totally delicious – how can you go wrong with those flavours! Such a sweet, zingy, icy treat!

    June 7, 2015
  20. This is so pretty Suzanne– and I’m sure delicious. We have an ice cream maker, up on the top shelf, just waiting to come down for the summer. Putting this one on my list… thanks friend!!

    June 7, 2015
    • I love dusting off my ice cream maker when the weather warms. This is so simple to make and really delicious, thanks so much Rhonda.

  23. Looks wonderful and so refreshing for this summer, Suzanne 🙂

    June 8, 2015
  24. I am always very curious about rose essence, rose water or anything that can be put into food/desserts. This is indeed so refreshing. The sun is striking hot outside and it’s good to have this when I get back home from work. We are so happy having you back, Suzanne. Have a lovely week. 🙂 xx

    June 8, 2015
    • Thanks so much Jhuls, it’s good to be back and thank you for hosting this week.

  25. This sounds refreshingly delicious Suzanne! I love sorbet since I’m lactose intolerant and can’t indulge in ice cream. What a creative idea to add some wine… sounds perfect for a warm day.

      Are you going to post the jelly recipe would love to see it. Thank you so much.

      June 8, 2015
  33. Wow! This looks awesome Suzanne, what an awesome way to use rose wine – gonna have to try this one! Glad to have you back at FF, I’ve not been able to be as active as I’d like with FF – stupid life getting in the way – lovely to see familiar faces when I do though!
