ingredient information
Sorbet (pronounced /s?r'be?/ sor-bay) is a frozen dessert made from sweetened water flavoured with iced fruit (typically juice or puree), chocolate, wine, and/or liqueur. The origin of sorbet is variously explained as either a Roman invention, a Chinese invention brought back by Marco Polo, or a Middle Eastern drink charbet, made of sweetened fruit juice and water. The term sherbet or charbet is derived from Turkish: serbat/serbet, "sorbet", from the Persian sharbat, which in turn comes from the Arabic ????? sharbat meaning "drink(s)" or "juice."[
