Ingredients

  • 1 cups red wine (I used Merlot)
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 3 cups of water
  • 1 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice

Instructions

1

Combine the water and sugar in a saucepan and heat to a simmer. Cover, and simmer 5 minutes, until sugar is dissolved. Stir in the wine, lemon juice and set it aside to cool to room temperature.

2

Freeze the mixture in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions. Transfer the mixture to a freezer-safe container and freeze for at least 3-4 hours.

3

If you do not have an ice cream maker, pour the mixture into a metal or plastic freezer container and freeze until softly set about 3 hours.

4

Remove from the container and chop coarsely into 3-inch pieces. Place in a food processor and process until smooth. Return the mixture to the freezer container and freeze again until set. Repeat this freezing and chopping process two or three times, until a smooth consistency is obtained.

5

Serve in scoops, decorated with herbs.
