Sour Cherry and Lavender Sorbet

Go slowly with the salt and lime juice, adding just a bit at a time. You may need more or less depending on your cherries, though keep in mind that flavor intensity dials down when frozen. If you want your sorbet to taste like a 10, flavor the base up to 11. If you can't find sour cherries, you can use their sweet counterparts; just up the acidity to keep things tart and refreshing.

Once blended, the base benefits from a few hours in the fridge so the flavors can mingle and the temperature can drop. The finished sorbet benefits even more from joining a glass of homemade lime soda for the best cherry lime rickey float you've ever had.
