Margarita Sorbet
Rating: Unrated 1
There are sorbets, and then there are sorbets with benefits. This sorbet, inspired by the classic cocktail, is one of those. Besides being delicious, refreshing, and easy to make, this gives you a low-key buzz, as there's just enough tequila to make you grin, but not enough to make you giggle.
Raspberry White Chocolate Mousse

This is a light and fluffy mousse with a wonderful raspberry sauce. Great layered like a parfait then frozen. Additional Raspberry sauce can be spooned over cakes or served with mousse.
