Photo: Randy Mayor; Styling: Sabrina Bone
Yield 8 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup)
"We live in the Napa Valley, where we developed our passion for great food and wine. This is a twist on one of my favorite cocktails. The red food coloring gives the sorbet a light rose color, but it is optional. Three small scoops in a martini glass make an elegant presentation."—Lynnsey Elshere, American Canyon, CA

  • 3 cups unsweetened pineapple juice
