Tequila-Lime Sorbet

Straight from the flavourful land of Mexico!

Sorbets are a fun way to take your favourite cocktail recipes (or flavour combinations) and with a little alcohol, you can have a super slushy or scoopable treat in no time!

t-lime sorbet

Servings: 2-1/2 pints.

1 1/4 cups sugar
1 1/4 cups water
1 1/2 cups tequila
1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
1/2 cup orange liqueur
1/2 cup light agave syrup
1/2 cup water

Combine the sugar and water in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Let cool.

In a small saucepan, bring the tequila to a boil. Cook until reduced by half, about 10 minutes. Pour the tequila into a bowl and stir in the cooled sugar syrup the remaining ingredients.

Pour the chilled mixture into an ice-cream maker and process following the manufacturer’s instructions. Store, covered tightly, in the freezer.

Alternatively, pour the mixture into a shallow container. Freeze about 1 hour, and then stir vigorously with a fork to break them up. Repeat freezing and stirring every hour or so until the mixture is thoroughly frozen but slightly slushy, about 6 hours. (You can also put the mixture in a food processor quickly to create a smoother consistency.)

Allow to freeze completely.
