In a few days it will be Summer. Time to think of refreshing desserts.
There are some delicious strawberries to be consumed and an almost finished bottle of champagne in the fridge.
Is it worth resisting the temptation and not drink the champagne?
Or can it be associated with the strawberries?
The dilemma is quickly solved: it will be a strawberry sorbet with champagne. The bubbles left should give the sorbet an extra kick.
You won’t be able to take this sorbet to Ascot or Henley in a hamper but you should enjoy it at home.
500g fresh strawberries, rinsed and hulled
100ml pink champagne, very cool
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Sugar sirup made with 125g sugar and 100ml water
A few fresh mint leaves, rinsed, to decorate.
1. Reserve a few strawberries to decorate.
2. Whiz the remaining strawberries in a food blender and mix with the cooled sirup, the lemon juice and the champagne.
3. Place in the sorbet maker for the time indicated by the manufacturer.
Serve immediately in pretty cocktail glasses and enjoy!
