You can enjoy your favorite wine, cool from the fridge... but what would you say to try it a few degrees colder, i.e. like sorbet?


Boil in a saucepan 300ml water with 300gram white sugar until sugar is dissolved, and for another two to three minutes. Let it cool for ten minutes, and add a bottle of light and aromatic, sweet white wine of your choice (see Moschato Limnou, Moscato Riou Patron, etc) together with 3 tablespoons of lemon juice.


Once it is cooled completely, put it in the ice cream maker. If you do not have an ice cream maker, let it in the freezer for about 3 hours, and then stir it with a fork. Let it in the freezer for another two hours to freeze completely. 


In the meantime, freeze well some small elegant glasses into which you will serve the sorbet before or after meal, or even as a cool, afternoon aperitif.
