Sorbet for breakfast? Why not?
This citrusy bellini variation is easy to make and refreshing to drink, lightly tart and just a little more sophisticated than the standard peach version.
Feel free to garnish with an additional scoop of lemon sorbet or a few raspberries when they're in season, or slice up some kumquats and drop them in each glass.
