Lemon sorbet is a refreshing, citrusy alternative to ice cream. It’s also served as palate-cleanser between courses at some fine-dining restaurants.

ThisWeek staffers answer the question: When’s the last time you had lemon sorbet?

Dennis Laycock: Places that serve sorbet usually have ice cream, too, so why would anyone ever get sorbet?

Scott Hummel: I've never had it and never plan to have it.

Lee Cochran: Opening weekend of March Madness.

Neil Thompson: No idea. I seem to have misplaced my sorbet-tracking records.

Lisa Proctor: I've only had raspberry sorbet. I'm sort of sour on lemon aside from lemonade.

Nate Ellis: Many moons ago. I think there was candlelight and a harpsichord playing softly in the room while I wondered over the demise of Napster. But I can't really be sure.

Andrew King: I'm sure I had some lemon sorbet or something similar at Jeni's at some point.

Abby Armbruster: I don't know if I've ever had lemon sorbet. I stick to mango sorbet, typically.

Sarah Sole: I'd like some now.
