Piña Colada Sorbet / Umbrella Sorbet post

I like sorbets alot, aside from the lime sorbet quasi-failure... Made a lemon sorbet a couple of days ago 1c sugar/1c water, 1c lemon juice, zest, 1t tequila, pretty good. Banana sorbets, especially with Amarula Liqueur are the bomb. Rhubarb sorbet is tasty too. This piña colada one is pretty good. Look for updates below as I add to the list, I'm kind of addicted to sorbets right now.

Piña Colada sorbet recipe:
1c sugar
14 oz can coconut milk
lime zest
14 oz can crushed pineapple in juice
3 frozen bananas
vanilla
1t Grand Marnier
Boil up the sugar and coconut milk with the lime zest.
Cool, and add everything else, except booze.
Freeze, stir, freeze, stir, 4 hours.
Add booze at end to soften ice crystals (this is a Joy of Cooking trick).

Just now (5-14-2010) I read an old David Lebovitz blog post about how to make ice creams without a dedicated machine, and he specifically notes that a stickblender does an admirable job. I figured that trick out pretty early in the process (the banana/lime/rum post) so I didn't make too much lousy sorbet, but now that that recommendation comes from an amateur and a professional you know it's good.
