Pink Sorbet for Sore Throats

I feel terrible for not being as vigilant as I should be on Deer Little Mysteries. I think it's something about working with the schedule of my two new jobs, school finals, and a new boy who's just walked into the picture- that's got me busy and distracted.

I don't know if this counts as a stroke of luck for you all, or just a stroke of bad luck for me, but I've come down with a cold again, leaving me stranded at home with a sore throat no amount of honey can seem to get rid of.

A recipe I'd love to share with you all though, that helps me through my pre summer blues, is pink grapefruit sorbet. I love it, because it's not super heavy and milky tasting like ice cream, and it's a sweet I can enjoy while trying to get over this bug.

What You'll Need

3 tsps vodka
3 cups strained grapefruit juice
3/4 cup syrup (1/2 cup sugar cooked with 1/3 cup water until clear)
1/2 pint sliced strawberries
(pink food coloring is up to you)

To begin, mix together your grapefruit juice, vodka, and syrup. Next, take the mix and put it in an ice cream machine, and freeze according to the ice cream maker's directions. When you take it out it should be served right away. If you'd like to store it, place it in a freezer container, and let it thaw for about fifteen minutes in the fridge to allow for it to soften.
If you want to be fancy, hollow out a grapefruit, slice a few strawberries, and scoop some sorbet over the strawberries in the grapefruit, and add whatever delicious fruity toppings you'd like!
