Friday Night Tipple/Dessert - Campari Citrus Sorbet

I felt like something fruity and different for this Friday night tipple. It's not really a drink, more of a sorbet but I'm sure some extra liquid would make it a lovely slushy cocktail.

I saw this recipe for Campari Citrus Sorbet on Mowielicious and thought it was perfect.

Campari-Citrus Sorbet (printable version)
each recipe makes 1.5 quarts sorbet
Grapefruit Sorbet
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
3 cups grapefruit juice
1/2 cup Campari
Orange Sorbet
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
3 cups orange juice
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/2 cup Campari
Mix the water and sugar together in a small pan over a low heat, and bring up to boil until the sugar dissolves. Allow the simple syrup to boil for exactly 4 minutes (this will give the sorbet the best consistency). Remove from heat and cool (makes a little over 1 cup).
Combine the citrus juice and Campari and add 1 cup of the cooled syrup. Adjust to taste: for the grapefruit sorbet, you may want to add a tablespoon or two extra syrup if you prefer it less tart. Remember, the mixture will taste slightly sweeter in liquid form than it does when frozen.
Freeze in an ice cream machine according to manufacturer’s directions (if you don't have an ice cream machine, don't despair! They also make great popsicles. After churning, allow sorbet to set in the freezer at least two hours. Serve in a bowl, or in a hollowed-out orange or grapefruit.

Happy Friday!
