I'm Off!

I'm off the NH for the weekend, back on Sunday, hopefully in time for a polo match! From what I understand that involves champagne and picnics and something about a sport.

It's actually supposed to rain all bloody weekend, but I'm still going to try and look like something out of Derek Lam's resort collection.

I feel like these are the broads you see sitting in lovely beach tents looking bored and eating this:

Campari Citrus Sorbet
recipe courtesy of this is glamorous
makes 1.5 quarts

1 cup sugar
1 cup water
3 cups grapefruit juice
1/2 cup campari

Mix the water and sugar together in a small pan over a low heat, bringing to boil until the sugar dissolves. Allow the simple syrup to boil for exactly 4 minutes (this will give the sorbet the best consistency). Remove from heat and cool (makes a little over 1 cup).

Combine the citrus juice and Campari and add 1 cup of the cooled syrup. Adjust to taste -- want to add a tablespoon or two extra syrup if you prefer it less tart. Remember, the mixture will taste slightly sweeter in liquid form than it does when frozen.

Freeze in an ice cream machine according to manufacturer’s directions {if you do not have an ice cream machine, they also make perfect popsicles}. After churning, allow sorbet to set in the freezer at least two hours.
