a few weeks ago, i was contacted by cloud 9 bakery in brighton (the first gluten free bakery i tried when i moved here fyi!) and told about their new wine sorbet made using barefoot merlot wine. they very kindly sent me a bottle of the wine along with the recipe so that i could have a go at making it myself.
i was a little nervous; it's only in the last year or so that i've started saying yes to a glass of wine (and then only red) and i'm still trying to figure out which types i really like. however, it's been a huge success and let's face it, with a description that boasts flavours of blackberry, raspberry and chocolate, it's gonna win me over pretty quickly!
j and i sat down with a glass each on sunday afternoon, and when the sun made an appearance i knew that this would be the perfect recipe for barbecues and lazy summer afternoons. it's refreshing, super flavourful, and still makes you feel a bit like a child with a slush puppy :)
i'm now feeling curious towards other types of fruit sorbets that would work in the summer- let me know if you have any recipes!
