Imagine yourself completely soaked on a hot sunny day? And what if someone offers you an icy cold cocktail? Sounds interesting, isn’t it? When it’s really sweltering out, drinking a chilled gin and tonic or a glass of sangria isn’t enough to cool you down. On such occasions, grab a frozen sorbet lying in your freezer. Sometimes they require a little bit more preparation than a traditional beverage, but the wait will be worth it.
Tips to keep in mind when preparing sorbets:
- The preparation of sorbets requires one to have an ice cream maker, but don’t fear if you don’t have it. You can either use a fork to mix the sorbet or a food processor.
- Another way is to freeze the base for the recipes as ice cubes and give them a quick pulse in your blender to turn them into slushes’.
- Sorbets can melt quickly as they contain alcohol and one has to eat them a bit faster.
Here are quick and easy sorbets for New Year ’s Eve:
- Gin & Tonic Sorbet. This refreshing sorbet must contain concentrated lime syrup. Add few juniper berries in the syrup as well. Serve it with garnished lime zest for more taste and punch.
- Whiskey Smash Sorbet. Use the extramint in your kitchen by blending it well with lemon and whisky. This combination is considered as one of the favourites amongst people.
- Sangria Sorbet. Go for a tasty mix of Fruit, wine, a little brandy or orange liqueur and transform your sangria into a sorbet. And interestingly, choose any wine like Red, white, rosé or Champagne for taste.
The best part about sorbets is the soft, creamy and melt-in-the-mouth texture that comes from tiny ice crystals. The tiny crystals are achieved by mixing together the right quantity of sugar syrup to fruit juice or fruit purée and then constantly churning the mixture as it freezes.
