How to make Blood Orange Basil Mint Sorbet

  1. Combine the water and sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and add the blood orange juice, basil and mint. Let steep for about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the lemon juice and strain into a bowl. Chill completely.
  3. Stir in the liqueur and freeze mixture in your ice cream machine according to manufacturer's instructions. Once the sorbet is frozen, transfer to 1-quart container and store tightly sealed in the freezer for a few hours until firm.

Makes approximately 1 quart.

*The liqueur can be omitted from the recipe, if desired, but it is recommended to keep the sorbet from getting too hard and icy.
