- 2 cups (480 ml) red wine (choose a vegan-friendly variety)
- 1 cup (200 g) granulated sugar
- 1 cup (240 ml) water
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- Fresh berries or mint leaves for garnish (optional)
- In a saucepan, combine the red wine, sugar, and water over medium heat. Stir until the sugar has dissolved.
- Bring the mixture to a gentle simmer, then reduce the heat to low. Let it simmer for about 5 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
- Remove the saucepan from the heat and let the mixture cool to room temperature.
- Once cooled, stir in the lemon juice. This will add a touch of acidity and help balance the sweetness.
- Transfer the mixture to a shallow, freezer-safe container or a prepared ice cream maker if you have one.
- Place the container in the freezer and let it chill for about 1 hour.
- After an hour, remove the container from the freezer and stir the sorbet mixture vigorously to break up any ice crystals that have formed. This will help create a smoother texture.
- Return the container to the freezer and repeat the stirring process every 30 minutes for the next 2-3 hours. This will prevent the sorbet from becoming too icy and ensure a creamy texture.
- Once the sorbet has reached your desired consistency, cover the container tightly and let it freeze for at least 4 hours or overnight.
- When ready to serve, let the sorbet sit at room temperature for a few minutes to soften slightly. Scoop into bowls or glasses, garnish with fresh berries or mint leaves if desired, and enjoy!
This vegan red wine sorbet is a refreshing and sophisticated dessert option. It captures the flavors of red wine in a cool and creamy treat, perfect for warm weather or special occasions.
