Sherbet Dairy Drinks - A lemon flavored Sherbet. Sherbets (pronounced SHER-biht) contain fruit juice or puree, sugar, water, milk and/or cream, and sometimes eggs which gives them a smooth and rich consistency somewhere between an ice cream and a sorbet. Comes from the Turkish word 'chorbet' which was a drink made with fruit juice/puree, sugar and milk. The story goes that the drink was frozen one day and that is how 'sherbet' was invented. Sherbets are served for dessert only, not in between meals like a sorbet as a palate cleanser
