  1. Step 1:

    To make the sorbet, pour the champagne into a saucepan and add the caster sugar. Finely grate the zests of the lemons and juice them and add these into the champagne/sugar mixture.

  2. Step 2:

    Heat the mixture until the sugar had dissolved and then remove from the heat. Pour into a bowl and leave to cool.

  3. Step 3:

    Once cool, pour into the ice cream machine and churn until you get a lovely sorbet. This will take between 45-50 minutes

  4. Step 4:

    To make the compote, put the berries in a pan together with the icing sugar, seeds of the vanilla pod and the juice of the lemon.

  5. Step 5:

    Put the pan on the heat and bring to a gentle simmer until the berries have softened. Remove from the heat and leave to cool

  6. Step 6:

    To serve, spoon a little sorbet at the bottom of a dessert glass, followed by some berry compote and then more sorbet and lastly garnish with some fresh berries on the top.
