Description

The perfect little palate cleanser or finisher for your outdoor party: a gin and tonic sorbet. Yes, you heard that right.

Ingredients

  • ½ cups Sugar
  • ½ cups Water
  • 1 whole Large Lime, Or 2 Medium-sized Limes, Zest And Juice
  • 3 ounces, fluid Gin
  • 2-½ cups Tonic Water

Preparation

In a saucepan, make simple syrup by heating water and sugar until sugar is dissolved. Take off heat and add lime zest and juice. Let cool. Once cooled, add tonic water and gin. Taste it and make any adjustments according to taste. Let everything cool in the refrigerator, then strain into the bowl of your ice cream machine. Follow your machine’s directions to freeze the sorbet. Store in a freezer-proof container in the freezer to allow it to harden some more.

Serve in pretty little glasses garnished with more lime zest, thin little slices of lime, or rim the glass with lime sugar (a mix of lime zest and sugar pulsed together in the food processor).

I made this without an ice cream maker (just took it out of the freezer to stir frequently). It was AWESOME. I will make it again with a little less tonic.

Love this!

Added extra lime, ’cause that’s how I like my drink!

I would recommed at least 24 hours in the freezer. Made this Saturday afternoon, and by Saturday night it was a slush, so stuck it back in the freezer.

By Sunday mid-day – it was perfect!

This is awesome!!! It is so easy to make. The taste is a perfect blend of sweet, lime, gin and tonic. We love! love! love! It doesn’t totally freeze up due to the gin, but we knew that was going to happen. We ate it straight from the ice cream machine!
