Orange Sorbet in fancy orange cups


It’s going to be 88 degrees today in New York. Here is a delightful icy refreshment for a sultry day . . . and so easy to make.
It requires an Ice cream maker.

Makes 6 servings.
1 cup water
½ cup sugar
2 cups fresh orange juice

Make a sugar syrup by bringing water and sugar to a boil in a small saucepan. Keep it at a slow simmer for 20 minutes. Take off heat and let cool. Add orange juice. Taste for sweetness. Make your sorbet according to the manufacturer’s instructions for your ice cream maker.

For a fun and decorative twist, you can create frozen orange cups from orange halves. Cut oranges in the center. Gently scoop out the contents, removing all the pulp. Proof in the freezer for about an hour so the orange half is frozen.

When Sorbet is ready to scoop into orange cups, garnish with fruit and serve. Impress your guests.
