Peace Love & Mellow

Holiday Mellow Sorbet


20 oz. Mellow all natural relaxation beverage
2/3 cup Sparkling wine or cider
2/3 cup organic blue agave nectar
1/4 cup honey
1 cup pureed strained strawberries
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons Grand Marnier or Triple Sec


Blend the strawberries with Mellow. Strain mixture through fine mesh strainer, unless you desire the small pieces of strawberry to be in the sorbet, if so, dont strain.

Bring agave, honey and wine (or cider) to a boil. Stir in pureed fruit, liqueur and lemon juice.

Chill in fridge until very cold. Then taste flavor and adjust to suit your taste with lemon or a little more sweet.

Pour mixture into a cake pan and freeze until half frozen. Then place in food processor to break up big ice chunks. Repeat this process one more time for a nice light texture.

Scoop frozen sorbet into small frozen oranges with the pulp scooped out or a wine glass (make sure you freeze them ahead of time), garnish with mint leaves or fresh fruit, such as raspberries.

Sorbet makes a lovely pause between courses at a long feast such as Thanksgiving or Christmas, however, you can also incorporate the fresh sorbet into a sparkling cocktail for New Years Eve!

Just follow these last two instructions:

Place a couple of small scoops (using a mini cookie dough scooper) of sorbet into a fluted champagne glass and top up with sparkling wine and a splash of your favorite fruit liqueur, my favorite is lychee liqueur with this particular drink. *garnish with your favorite display of love...

I hope you have a fabulous and groovy Holiday Season, with the close launch of Mellow taking most of my time, I stopped for a moment to post one of my favorites ways to enjoy Mellow before the holidays pass us by!

Peace Love & Mellow...
