This sorbet is refreshing and the color is more pink that that of red wine.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a small saucepan, bring wine, 1 1/4 cups water, and sugar to a boil over medium heat, stirring often, until sugar dissolves. Add pears; reduce heat, and simmer until tender, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Stir in lemon juice and a pinch of salt; cool completely. Transfer to a shallow baking dish. Freeze until solid, about 6 hours (or overnight).

  • With a fork, break frozen mixture into large pieces. In 2 batches, puree in a food processor until completely smooth, 2 to 3 minutes per batch. Transfer to an airtight container; freeze until ready to serve (sorbet will be soft).


You can use 1 cup cranberry-juice cocktail instead of the red wine.

This recipe was fantastic. I followed it exactly. Great use for leftover wine.
