Booze-based sorbet - will it freeze?

AnneInMpls | May 23, 2006 08:09 PM

I have a dumb question: If I make sorbet with several cups of wine and/or liqueur, will it freeze?

I always thought that too much booze would inhibit the freezing. But good ol' Martha has a sorbet recipe that calls for two cups of champagne. Will this recipe work?

Also, does the alcohol dissipate when it's frozen, or do I have to worry about getting people drunk on my sorbet? (OK, I have two dumb questions...)

And, yes, I know that the bubbles won't stay around, so it's not worth using expensive champagne. I figure I would use a cheaper sparkling wine or still wine.

Thanks,
Anne
