Blackberry-Cocoa Sorbet Recipe

Blackberry-cocoa sorbet is light and refreshing, no matter when you serve it. Cool off your crowd after outdoor vows with mini scoops presented in tiny cones or Chinese soup spoons. Or dish it out for dessert alongside shortbread cookies flavored with green tea, for a subtle sweetness that balances the tangy berries.
