Unless you’re lucky enough to pick up a bushel of perfect, tree-ripened peaches, chances are your supermarket beauties may be a little bland. A shot of peach schnapps lends a boost of extra flavor for spectacular sorbet. .

|*The number of peaches required for this depends on the size of the fruit. Count on about 8 medium peaches. Prepare the puree by skinning, pitting, and chopping the peaches, then processing them in your blender or food processor.**Make sure to use piping-hot syrup, which causes the alcohol from the schnapps to evaporate. Otherwise, lingering alcohol can affect the taste and texture of the sorbet.
