Nothing is more refreshing on a hot summer night than some nice cold sorbet. Pink sorbet topped with a little tequila and triple sec is a quick dessert made simple for easy summer entertaining.

It's a hot summer evening outside and you are tired of serving the same old vanilla ice cream and ice pops for dessert. Why not make a homemade raspberry sorbet with a margarita twist? A make-ahead dessert that the whole family can enjoy is a must for an easy summer dessert and entertaining. Adding the tequila and triple sec at the end ensures that the kids will be able to enjoy the homemade raspberry sorbet as well.

If you don't have a homemade ice cream maker, just pour the raspberry mixture into a large glass bowl and freeze.
