Servings 1 quart


  • 12 ounces fresh raspberries
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/4 cup dry red wine
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup cold water


  • Combine the raspberries, sugar, and lemon juice in a mixing bowl. Refrigerate covered at least 1 hour.
  • When ready to freeze, add the red wine, corn syrup, and water, and stir gently until blended.
  • Transfer the mixture to a food processor or blender and process until smooth.
  • Place a strainer over a large bowl. Add the raspberry mixture to the strainer and whisk vigorously to push through everything but the raspberry seeds.
  • Add the mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze following the manufacturer's instructions.
  • Transfer the frozen sorbet to an airtight container and freeze until ready to enjoy. I preferred the texture of the sorbet after it had been frozen at least overnight.
