Orange Sorbet in Fancy Orange Cups

It’s going to be 88 degrees today in New York. Here is a delightful icy refreshment for a sultry day . . . and soooo easy to make.

It requires an ice cream maker.  Makes 6 servings.

1 cup water
½ cup sugar
2 cups fresh orange juice

Make a sugar syrup by bringing water and sugar to a boil in a small sauce pan. Keep it at a slow simmer for 20 minutes. Take off heat and let cool. Add orange juice. Taste for sweetness. Refrigerate until chilled.  Make your sorbet according to the manufacturer’s instructions for your ice cream maker.

For a decorative twist you can create frozen orange cups from oranges cut in half.   Gently scoop out the contents, removing all the pulp. Place in the freezer for about an hour until the orange halves are frozen.

When sorbet is ready, scoop into orange cups, garnish with fruit and serve.
