would you like some tequila lime sorbet?

i'm making a batch of this yummy goodness tomorrow. it's so good, i thought you should have some, too.

tequila lime sorbet

you need:

lime juice
lime zest
an ice cream machine (preferrably electric)

that's it!

here's what you do:

make simple syrup -- put this in a saucepan on low, let it dissolve.

one cup sugar
one cup water

then add one cup of fresh squeezed lime juice to the dissolved hot simple syrup, pulp and all. put in two tablespoons of lime zest. stir this, make sure everything is dissolved and totally liquid, then let it cool to room temperature and then refrigerate it for TWO HOURS.

after TWO HOURS, yank it out and put 4 tablespoons of tequila in it. stir carefully, then pour all of it into an ice cream maker for 30 minutes. after 30 minutes, take it out and put it in the freezer. leave it there overnight for best results -- but it should be ready in TWO HOURS, at least.

eat up and think of me...

I've been looking for a recipe for lime tequila sorbet that does not cook the tequila... Thanks! I can't wait to try this.

be warned: this has turned into a real summertime treat. you're going to want a lot of it. the only hard part is squeezing all those limes!
