The Palate Cleanser - Lemon Rosemary Sorbet

What I lost on the last course I made up for with this course.  This was perfect!  I found the recipe here.

Lemon Rosemary Sorbet

A perfect balance of sweet and tart; rosemary and lemon

1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup fresh rosemary, finely chopped
1 1/3 cups fresh squeezed lemon juice
3 T vodka

Combine sugar and water in saucepan. 
Stir until mixture comes to a boil; reduce heat to low and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Add rosemary, cover, and let stand approximately 10 minutes or until cool. 

Place a fine strainer over a large bowl and pour syrup mixture through (straining out the rosemary leaves). Add lemon juice and vodka to the strained syrup mixture; stir until thoroughly blended.

Freeze for two hours, then scrape and stir with a fork.  Freeze again. Once again, scrape and stir with a fork.  Repeat one more time and freeze until solid.

Tomorrow, the main entree.
