Notes

This traditional frozen Venetian drink made with gelato is hard to categorise - part drink, part dessert ­with a texture more akin to a slushie. We've used sorbet instead of gelato but, either way, it's delicious; just be sure to serve it with long spoons or straws, if served in tall glasses.
