The supermarket attendant demanded to see my license while I was purchasing my latest addiction…wine sorbet. Yes, adults, it’s time to rejoice because there’s a new frozen treat on the market that’s made just for you. Entrepreneurial duo, Bret Birnbaum and David Zablocki, birthed Wine Cellar Sorbet in 2005, causing a buzz among wine connoisseurs and dessert junkies alike.
When first tasting the Riesling sorbet, I pondered completing the five steps of wine tasting: see, swirl, sniff, sip, and savor. Impatience overtook as I dug my spoon in the pint and savored my first bite of pure heaven. An explosion of flavors overtook my mouth, and the refreshing coolness was blissful on a hot summer’s day.
Riesling is my sorbet of choice, but five other flavors are available: Champagne, Sangria Rojo, Pinot Noir, Rose, and Cabernet Sauvignon. Luscious and guilt-free, all sorbets are fat-free, low in sugar, and no more than 5% alcohol. The Web site boasts a unique collection of recipes featuring the various sorbet flavors. So, grab a pint at your local grocer and get creative.
