Another serving suggestion is three sorbets of your choice. This is created by sectioning your container into three. Once the sorbet is set, scoop out and roll balls incorporating all three flavours. Summer fruit sorbets are my favourite. Serve these balls of sorbet in good quality glasses and top with bubbles, fresh mint and lavender. My kind of dessert!
