Grapefruit Champagne Sorbet

Feeling fancy? This sorbet is your invitation to a black-tie cocktail party in a cone. Inspired by the champagne gin fizz raised in delicate flutes at New Year’s Eve parties of the rich and famous, we’ve combined tart local grapefruits with sparkling wine from Temecula’s South Coast Winery for a fruit-forward and effervescent dairy-free delicacy. Discerning palates will pick up on the notes of juniper, cardamom, lavender, sarsparilla, coriander, anise, and dried sweet orange peels—referencing the botanicals used by American gin distillers—in this upscale January flavor.
