Sorbet is a mushy mix of ice and juice that's eaten as a dessert. Sorbet is especially delicious in summer.
Sorbet is a sweet, frozen treat. Unlike ice cream or gelato, it doesn't contain milk or cream, though a well-made sorbet can have a deliciously creamy texture. Sorbet is a French word, and it's pronounced that way too, with a silent t. It comes from the Italian sorbetto, with its roots in the Turkish serbet, which makes clear the relationship between sorbet and its close relative, sherbet.
