When the people at Pom Wonderful contacted me about trying their new Pomegranate Cranberry juice, I was more than a little happy. I adore pomegranate juice AND I adore cranberry juice, so putting them together in one makes me very happy.
I immediately knew I wanted to try a sorbet. I knew this, because.. I was feeling really cruddy…anyone ever have a salivary gland infection? Anyone? Well, it’s not fun, half my face was looking like The Elephant Man, and if you don’t remember The Elephant Man, then you are probably, like the majority of the population, way younger than me. (And, my apologies to the Pom Wonderful people, I’m sure you didn’t expect a discussion on a salivary gland infection in your review).
So, anyway, I have these cute little bottles of Pomegranate Cranberry Juice, which I pour in a blender. Then I add one cup of orange juice. Then, I grab the boozy cranberries (about a cup) stashed in the freezer, from my cranberry liqueur, so I toss them in there too. Give it a quick whirl. I don’t even bother making a simple syrup, and it’s all good and cold, so into the ice cream maker it goes. Out comes this sweet, tart sorbet. It’s more like a snow cone, or what is it called when you freeze it in a container and you rake your fork across it, leaving a pile of frozen granules?
I also made it because my photography challenge for the week was “How do other’s see you?” I had no idea where to go with this. Then, I thought..hey about a pomegranate cranberry sorbet made with boozy cranberries– a little sweet, a little tart, a little cold, melts in hot weather, and may have recently consumed alcohol…I think that sums me up, don’t you?
This will be my entry for Foodie Friday at Designs by Gollum!
