This tastes divine. But agree with tcunnane - it froths up a LOT when you add the sorbet so make sure you use a really big jug because you won't want to waste a drop.

Be very careful when you add the sorbet. It froths up a lot and we lost a lot first time we made it. Won't make that mistake again! Use a huge jug or add sorbet very slowly.
