Serves | Prep Time | Cook Time


2 1/2 cups fresh orange juice (from 10-12 oranges)
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup Campari
Zest of one orange
Juice of half a lemon

Candied orange peel
1 orange
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup water

Place orange juice, juice of half a lemon and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat.

Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved. Remove from heat, pass through a fine-meshed sieve, add the orange zest and chill the mixture in the freezer for 3-4 hours.

Mix in the alcohol and freeze in your ice-cream machine according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

For the candied orange peel, peel an orange and cut lengthwise half an inch wide and 3 inches in length. Remove the bitter white pith as much as possible. Put the strips in a saucepan together with sugar and water. Bring to a boil and cook for 15-20 minutes. Remove the strips from the sugar mixture and place on a parchment paper to cool.

I rarely drink alcohol. And when I do, I drink Campari and Campari only.

If I feel thirsty, I drink it mixed with mineral water (which also help release the flavors). If I feel festive, I prefer it with orange juice. And if it is a rather chilly day, nothing warms me up more than a Campari straight up.

For quite a long time, I have been thinking about how it would taste in a sorbet. I am glad I tried. Campari Orange Sorbet is as good as the drink itself - if not better.

I topped it with candied orange peel and served on a hot summer night.

I would really like to use your campari sorbet recipie in a food column I write and would cite you as the source. Please add me as a friend so we can communicate more about this. Deadline quickly approaching. Thanks--Lhain

Sounds good to me. Campari is the only liquoor I drink as well.
