Some years ago when I was living in Argentina, I tried a Malbec ice cream that blew my mind and to this day I have been fantasizing with it…so of course when I got my Ice cream maker, red wine and berries was top of my list! And let me tell you, it didn’t disappoint!
This recipe is easy, delicious and a bit boozy and would be the winner of any guest at a dinner party.
1 Bottle of Malbec , but you could use any other wine that goes well with red fruits.
Sugar to taste ( I used around ¼ of a cup of brown sugar )
Aprox. 2 ½ cups of Red berries or you can also use a bag of frozen berries.
In a pan, heat the red wine and the sugar, bring to boil and then simmer in low heat for around 20 minutes. Taste and adjust the sugar as necessary.
In a bowl, pour the wine and add the berries, making sure you have an equal mix. Leave to rest until completely cool, preferably overnight.
Blend the cooled wine and berries and pour the mix on your ice cream maker and make according to the manufacturers instructions. You can have your sorbet softer as it comes out of the machine or freeze for a few hours.
I love this sorbet, it’s perfect for this hot summer that we are having! Although E thought It would also go really well as a Christmas dessert… so we’ll see, might have to try it then too!
Have a lovely weekend everyone!
