Es la única traducción para "sorbete" que puse encontrar, menos "sherbet".

To trixiemck: Yes, but where is the proof that \"sorbete\" = straw?

Sorry, but I\'m still not convinced. Nowhere can I find that \"sorbete\" means \"straw\".

OK, I see \"sorbete\" does actually mean straw in Dominican Republic Spanish.


It\'s also a \"sorbeto\" in Peurto Rican Spanish, according to the above site.

However, the document is in Castilian Spanish, and they don\'t call a \"sorbete\" a \"straw\" there. It\'s \"water ice\" or \"sherbet\" in \"castellano\".
