Strawberry Sorbet with Sour Cherry Liquor

Strawberry Sorbet with Sour Cherry Liquor

Author Notes: This is one of my favorite sorbets to make in the summer once strawberries hit the farmers market. I love how this sorbet locks in the sweetness and fragrance of the strawberries. To add a special touch, I add a teaspoon or two of my grandmother's home-made sour cherry liquor. If you don't have my grandmother's cherry liquor, then I recommend using kirsch or another cherry liquor. roxi365
