Red Grape Sorbet to Prolong the Sugar High

After eating doughnuts, the natural thing to do is get gelato, right? We went straight to the Il Laboratorio del Gelato window on Orchard Street after hitting the Doughnut Plant. Jon Snyder’s gelato shop is known for its experimental flavors; today they included Thai chile chocolate and red grape sorbet.

The red grape sorbet was just right on this hot, hot humid day (some of the worst weather in nine years, Tanya Steel told us this morning). The sorbet was deep red-purple, with an intense grape flavor—almost like drinking unfermented wine-grape juice. It was tart, with what tasted  like a hint of ketchup—in a totally good way. Guess that’s what red tastes like.
