Don’t have enough of the cold yet? Well I do. York City is so cold today! The streets are icy and we have to watch our every step. I am really looking forward to warmer days. I like hot summers, cold drinks, small clothes, large straw hats, secretly turning the AC off in our living room (my husband likes it cold)… Can’t wait.
So this colorful desert is a message from me to the weather gods: Goodbye Winter, Hello Spring! I made a pomegranate sorbet with sparkling wine. It is such a refreshing, colorful summery dessert! I envision myself eating this in a few months on our fire escape that I call the balcony.
Until then I will just have to keep watching the video I took of how to make this icy treat:
Are you guys ready to say goodbye to the winter? If so, try this:
1 pomegranate 1 cup of sparkling wine 1 lemon 4 tablespoons of sugar mint leaves Cut the pomegranate into a couple of large pieces. In a bowl filled with water peel out the little seeds. The water prevents you from having red stains all over your clothes and kitchen. Put all seeds in a mixer and puree them. Pour the pomegranate mash through a sieve to extract the juice and get rid of the larger pieces. Mix the pomegranate juice with the sparkling wine, the lemon, and the sugar, and pour it into a serving bowl. Freeze for at least 4 hours, stirring once after about two hours. Serve with mint leaves.
