Sorbetto di Melone

Sorbetto di melone, cantaloupe sorbet, so refreshing and so easy! Take one very ripe cantaloupe, cut it into slices, clean the seeds, then cut into cubes (disposing of the rind). Using either a handheld blender or a regular blender, blend the cubed melon along with half a cup of sugar (the quantity of sugar may vary depending on your sweet tooth). Stir in a healthy splash of Prosecco and a healthy splash of Vodka.  You can leave out the Prosecco and Vodka for a non-alcoholic sorbet -- but why would you? At this point, I'm not sure if I would call this a sorbet or perhaps a variation of the Sgroppino. I then poured the contents into a container and put it in the freezer, stirring it about every half an hour until it was somewhere between a slushy and a sorbet. Sorbetto or Sgroppino, whatever you call it, I call it delicious!

I've been away again. . ... getting married this time!
That's a good excuse for not having posted, right?
