Orange Sherbet: Color to Make Your Summer Sweet

Last Updated on

Orange sherbet: Color for summer

The word, “sherbet,” means  “sweet” in the Middle Eastern world.  Prepared with cooked fruit juices and considered a great anecdote to summer’s heat, sherbet originated in Turkey several centuries ago. Sherbet is similar to sorbet with one major difference: Sorbet does not contain milk or eggs, whereas sherbet does. Popular flavors today include: raspberry, lime, lemon and our favorite of the moment, orange. We won’t go so far as to say the orange sherbet color is the new black, but  this season we want all our summer accouterments to be in this beautiful, fashionable shade. Sweet!
