Recipe Notes

Make sure everything is super chilled as there is quite a lot of mixture that needs to freeze.  The colder everything is the better.  If you can't squeeze all the mixture into your machine, don't waste it.  I had a little bit left over and it made the most delicious cocktail mixed with prosecco.  Because you are using whisked egg white there is no need to get this sorbet out of the freezer in advance ready to serve.  It's totally scoopable immediately, which is very useful me thinks!
