Creamy Persimmon Sorbet
A plush, creamy sorbet full of honeyed sweetness that's cut by a touch of malty astringency.
Cranberry and Lillet Rouge Sorbet
Serve this tart sorbet as a palate cleanser between courses, or as a light dessert with whipped cream and candied ginger.

If you like your desserts more tart than sweet, this sorbet is for you. And if you're a little addicted to the pleasantly bitter taste of Campari, this sorbet is really for you. It's more tart than sweet with a bitter kick that makes for an especially clean-tasting sorbet.
Pear, Riesling, and Ginger Sorbet
Pears, sweet-tart Riesling, and spicy ginger come together in a sorbet that's ripe and juicy with a clean, refreshing heat. Look for a Riesling with moderate sweetness but good acidity that has an alcohol content around 12%.
