Sorbet eam without the gadget

Anyone have a great recipe for sorbet without using an ice cream maker? I have made ice cream in the past with a very custard-y base that came out perfectly smooth and creamy (with lots of stirring). I'd like the sorbet to be smooth as well, as opposed to a granita-like consistency.

      Thank you so much! Sounds great and fun to experiment with too.

        I made this recipe last night... adding the juice of one lime and a teaspoon of grand marnier. Delicious without iciness.
