"Makes for a tasty, refreshingly light finish to a meal.

One guest who enjoyed it said "This rocks. It's the definition of cool and refreshing". All four of us enjoyed it tonight; the finish to a rather spicy Thai meal.

One modification -- inspired by a recent Alton Brown episode on "melons" which featured watermelon sorbet, I added 1 tablespoon of vodka to the pureed watermelon before adding the cooled syrup. (The vodka was Grey Goose Lemon-infused Vodka.) This helped keep ice crystals from forming and the result was a smoother consistency."

Making this now! Tastes great, not quite frozen yet though. I make my sorbet without an ice cream maker - I just take it out of the freezer and stir it up every half hour or so... The vodka tip sounds like it'd work well, I'll have to try that next time!

This sounds really nice. Any ideas on how to do this without an ice cream maker?

Very nice and refreshing dessert item. Super simple to make, very light, and it hits the spot on a warm afternoon/evening!
