Prep Time: 10 min    Total Time: 10 min    Yield: 1-1/3 cup


1/2 cup white granulated sugar
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup fresh mint leaves and stems plus sprigs for garnish
1/2 cup fresh grapefruit juice (pink or yellow)


Combine sugar, water, mint leaves and stems in a small saucepan; bring to a boil, then lower the heat to a simmer until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat, cover and set aside to cool. Add grapefruit juice, puree in a blender or processor; strain; transfer mixture to a shallow dish or pan; cover and freeze until firm.

Puree again in a blender, transfer to a small bowl; cover and freeze.

Make 1 to 3 balls sorbet with a melon baller and put into a stemmed glass, or present it as I did by turning a martini glass upside down and putting one ball sorbet on top the glass bottom with flowers underneath the glass bowl (see my photograph). Garnish with mint leaves and serve this refreshing palate cleanser.
