  • Yield: Makes 4 servings (serving size: 6 tablespoons citrus mixture and about 1/3 cup sorbet)
  • Prep time: 15 Minutes


  • 1 red grapefruit
  • 2 navel oranges (or 3 clementines)
  • 2 tablespoons orange-flavored liqueur such as Grand Marnier or Triple Sec
  • 4 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups raspberry sorbet


1. Using a sharp knife, peel the grapefruit and oranges, cutting away all of the white pithy part of the rind. Cut the fruit into segments.

2. Transfer fruit to a medium bowl. Stir in liqueur and sugar; let stand at least 5 minutes before serving to let sugar dissolve. If not serving immediately, cover and refrigerate mixture until needed (up to 1 day).

3. To serve, divide the citrus mixture evenly among 4 small dishes or bowls. Top each portion with a scoop of sorbet.
