Red Wine & Pear Sorbet is easy to make, absolutely delicious and the perfect refreshing sweet treat for those July 4th backyard BBQ’s!
July 4th is only a week away which means it’s full-fledged summer time here in Texas. Translation -> it’s HOT! But that still won’t stop us from spending the holiday grilling out & shooting off fireworks over the lake! We’ll just need to make sure we have plenty of cool treats available & my Red Wine & Pear Sorbet is a perfect option!
This sorbet is the perfect hot weather treat! It’s not too sweet, so easy to make – no ice cream maker required! – and it’s inexpensive to whip up which means it’s perfect for serving to a crowd! To make my sorbet, I used CK Mondavi Scarlet Five Wine, which is the only American grown wine in the “supermarket wine under $10” category. The Scarlet Five is a blend of five red varieties – Cabernet, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc & Malbec – capturing the best of each vintage. It’s a full bodied wine with a soft balanced finished that paired perfectly with the sweetness of the pears.

Not only do I love CK Mondavi wines because of the taste & the price, but I love the commitment they have in supporting our troops! A percentage of all sales of their wines between May – August is being donated to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund (up to $50k), which is an organization that supports the men & women of our Armed Forces and their families. IFHF is funded entirely by public donations & serves our military personnel & their families who have been wounded or killed in service to our nation. I personally can’t think of a better cause for July 4th!
