Mixed berry sorbet

Based on this recipe. Makes approx 1.5 quarts.

* 1 3/4 cups water
* 1 cup sugar
* 1 cup fresh blueberries
* 1 cup fresh strawberries
* 1 cup fresh raspberries
* 1 cup Newman’s Own Lime-Aid or Lemonade (I think the Lime-Aid might be too bitter, actually)

9. Cover and process or blend until almost smooth.
10. Press blueberry mixture through the fine-mesh sieve; discard skins.
11. In a large bowl combine the pureed mixtures, remaining cooking liquid, and Lime-Aid.
