Red grapefruit sherbet with ginger

Happy 1st of June! I can't imagine 2nd month of summer is already here. And it's pity, as it's cold outside, not matter that June used to be hottest month in my childhood.
I was having an ice-cream machine since last autumn but barely used. And now summer is here and it's like +15 C outside and raining. No time for ice cream - more thoughts about coffee and blanket and heartwarming pie.
But I hope in other side of world you are having better days ;) These ice-cream were prepared for bloggers e-magazine - Cloudsmag (be sure to check our page here). Ant they were delicious! Hints of ginger bites a little so you sure have total refreshment here.
About 0,8 l
400 ml / 1.7 cups red grapefruit juice (fresh, or 100% from package)
200 ml / 0.8 cups + 1 tbs sugar
1 tsp vanilla sugar
1 tbs orange liqueur
1 tbs grated grapefruit zest
200 / 0.8 cups ml heavy cream (30-40% fat content)
3 cm ginger piece

Place 200 ml of juice, 200 ml of sugar and vanilla sugar in a small pot.  Heat over low-medium heat, stirring, until all of the sugar has dissolved.  Pour the mixture into a refrigerator-safe bowl and let it cool to room temperature.
Add the remaining grapefruit juice, grapefruit zest and liqueur.
Beat cream with the remaining 1 tbs of sugar. Add it to the juice mixture.
Peel and grate ginger. You should get about 1 tbs from this amount. Add the ginger to the sherbet mixture, combine well and place in the refrigerator to chill for at least an hour.
Once the mixture has chilled and you are ready to make your ice cream, pour the juice mixture into your ice cream maker.
Churn the ice cream to your desired consistency. The sherbet should be ready in 30 minutes. Put it in a cold clean refrigerator safe bowl and freeze.
If you do not have an ice cream maker you can whip the ice cream mass with a fork every 30 minutes. Do this 6-7 times.
Remove the sherbet from the fridge 5-10 minutes before serving.

    1. Thank you :) can't wait for warmer days

  2. I love red grapefruits, but I've never used them in any dessert before (probably because I always finish them before I can get around to using them haha). Your sherbet looks really good- love the colour!

    1. They are to bitter for me to eat alone :)

  3. We've been soooo in the mood for ice cream lately. Love the flavor of this! So good -- thanks.

  4. This is the right time for these goodies! Adding ginger for sure take it to the next level, would love to try it but can I omit orange liqueur from the recipe?

    1. No problem at all :) still it will taste good

  5. The combination of grapefruit and ginger sounds very very exciting! I can almost taste it!
