Summer Sorbet Cups

July 1, 2015

Summer SorbetA few weeks back I spent three days, sunrise to sunset, cleaning out our garage. It was a bear of a project but the reward (besides having an über organized space in the end) was finding gems left and right that I completely forgot about. Barricaded by other boxes was my grandmother’s collection of tea cups. My first thought was to wrap them back up safely for a season that called for warm, cozy tea dates. Not much use for a tea cup at the start of winter—wrong.

Along came a hot day and a severe craving for an icy treat. So I pulled out the ice cream maker—another garage rescue—and whipped up a raspberry pineapple sorbet. The bright pink color looked all too perfect with the tea cups and the serving size was just enough. Tea sorbet party is currently in the works.
