Lemon Sorbet
1 large lemon zested on a grater.
2 Cups tap water,
1 cup white sugar.
Add these 3 ingredients into a saucepan and bring to boil.
Once boiled reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 5 mins.
It will make the syrup.
Remove from heat and cool.

Once cooled add syrup to a bowl,
add 1 cup lemon juice and
1 cup carbonated water.
I used Aquelle sparkling water, stir well and place in an empty 1.5 lt ice cream container. Freeze for 1 1/2 hours.
Remove from freezer and stir with a hand whisk.
Place back in freezer and repeat the whisking every hour for the next 4 hours until ready to serve.
It tastes just like the store bought lemon sorbet.
