Strawberry sorbet, the kind you'd find at a second hand store.

I made this. Came out well. Cut sugar in half on second pass, added grapefruit wedge. Came out better.

Tried to adapt it into a red pepper sorbet. Not crazy enough to work.

I was trying to remember a song that was on a mixtape my friend Chiann made for me years ago, by the band Flashing Lights. I was churning through google results and came on this:
