It’s time to raise your glass as we toast National Moscato Day! This year, the #SundaySupper crew is teaming up with Gallo Family Vineyards to bring you a fresh and innovative assortment of recipes in celebration. My contribution to the party is this silky mango sorbet, with a surprising twist–it’s made with Moscato wine.

With summer just around the corner, a well-chilled Moscato is an ideal food companion as it’s light, crisp, and not overly sweet. On a hot day, that spells refreshing to me. But beyond its drinkability, Moscato works well in a variety of dishes, from sweet to savory. Despite its recent rise popularity (it’s currently the second most popular white varietal), the Muscat grape itself is thought to be the oldest domesticated grape variety. It’s even versatile enough to become a raisin or to be enjoyed as a table grape. As someone who has stayed true to reds all these years, I wonder what else I’ve been missing!

Just how versatile is it? You may recall, I recently made these stuffed pork chops with a Moscato gravy which received rave reviews from the family. As you can see from the line-up below, there’s no shortage on creativity when it comes to cooking with Moscato. As for this sorbet, it’s as light and refreshing as the wine itself. The creaminess of the ripe mangoes give it the richness of ice cream on the palate without taking a big toll on the waistline. Win-win, right?

Thanks to Gallo Family Vineyards, we now have a day designated for celebrating this special wine. It’s available in red, white, and pink, and Gallo is providing a $1 off coupon to help get this party started. Use the Gallo store locator to find some near you, then enjoy these recipes we’ve prepared for you today, starting with this sorbet, of course.

Start by preparing the simple syrup in advance and allowing that to chill. Once all the ingredients are properly chilled, puree the mangoes in the bowl of a food processor.

Transfer everything to your ice cream maker and whirl away.

It may still be too soft when the ice cream maker is finished, so transfer the bowl to the freezer until desired firmness is reached.

For fun, I made some ice cream sandwiches with toasted coconut wafers–YUM!

Stunning sorbet and I love how easy they are to put together! No eggs, no cooking custards and no cooling time! Puree and freeze! Plus the moscato gives it such a nice taste and texture I bet.

This one has me convinced that an ice cream maker needs to be our next kitchen item to purchase!!! Oh yummy!


DB-The Foodie Stuntman @ Crazy Foodie Stunts May 4, 2014 at 11:01 am

Great minds think alike, no? I think your method is also technically more accurate than mine because I forgot to note to cool the simple syrup. I love those sorbet sandwiches too!


The Ninja Baker May 4, 2014 at 12:31 pm

Very gorgeous indeed, Anne!


Marlene @Nosh My Way May 4, 2014 at 1:39 pm

Wow, Anna, this looks so refreshing and I love the cookie mango sandwiches too.

Those little cookie sandwiches are so much fun! I can just taste the tart sweetness of this sorbet now. Moscato is SO versatile!
