Elderflower, Lime & Mint 'Mojito' Sorbet
« on: December 04, 2011, 06:09:57 am »
I love Mojito's on a lazy hot summer afternoon and I have also been wanting to experiment with different flavoured ice cubes so this is what I came up with...........it can be eaten as a very tangy sorbet or dosed with Rum.

Ingredients

250ml  Elderflower cordial diluted and made into 4 trays icecubes
Zest peel of 2 limes
250 300g Lime flesh, zest and pith removed (can use some lemon)
100g Raw Sugar (can add more if like it sweeter)
1 bunch mint, leaves only washed
Garnish with a few extra sprigs mint
White Rum to taste approx 25ml per person about 120 ml (optional)
 
Method ( As per EDC sorbet)

Make Ice cubes in advance, strong dilution you can always bulk out with plain ice.
