Hibiscus and Grapefruit Sorbet

Chef Way This dessert has several complex components: hibiscus sorbet, yuzu curd and rose-water foam.

Easy Way The hibiscus sorbet, the simplest and most delicious part of the restaurant dessert, stands alone. A simple combination of sugar, water, hibiscus tea (often sold as Red Zinger) and grapefruit juice gets churned in an ice cream maker.
