This is probably the easiest dessert in my whole repertoire but it may also be one of the most perfect. It's bright, clean and refreshing flavor is a welcome ending to any meal. When I serve it in a small wide-mouthed glass and top it with a little sprig of mint, it looks really beautiful. You can make this a couple of days in advance but then you'll want to cover it well with saran wrap so it doesn't absorb any freezer flavor.
