Pour the chilled mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's directions until it reaches “soft-serve” consistency. Transfer sorbet to a one- or two-quart lidded plastic container; cover surface with plastic wrap and seal. For best results, sorbet should ripen in the freezer for at least 2 hours or overnight.
