Raspberry-Campari Sorbet

Sweet, tart, and refreshingly bitter, this sorbet has a lot going on. [Photograph: Max Falkowitz]

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.

Though this recipe is really about making raspberry sorbet taste more like raspberries. Campari replaces some of the fruit's bitterness that gets lost when making sorbet. The end result tastes a little like Campari, but mostly like the fruit itself.

You might be temped to skip the small amount of orange zest in the recipe, but don't. Its sweetness brings the raspberry and Campari together far better than they would on their own.
