- Combine the passion fruit purée and the mint simple syrup and refrigerate until cool, about 1 hour. Place your container for the sorbet in the freezer to chill.
- Churn the sorbet according to the ice cream makers instructions and transfer to the pre-chilled container. Let it freeze for 2 hours.
For the float, scoop the sorbet into a glass and put the mint leaves on top. Add the sparkling water/wine, give it a stir to combine, and enjoy!
