4 Peaches
10 Almonds

2 tsp Simple Syrup

Directions
In a food processor, combine and puree peaches and almonds.
Stir together puree mixture, club soda, almond extract, vodka, and simple syrup.

*In this case, the vodka serves a very practical purpose.  It allows the sorbet to keep a nice, slushy texture without freezing into an unmanageable block of ice.
