Sorbets are a great way to cool down in the summer and serve as a light, chilled dessert for brunch and lunch. While they are more time consuming than blended drinks, they are worth every minute of your time. This sorbet is lemon-flavored and spiked with vodka, of which we suggest using a premium brand simply because they taste so much better.

What You'll Need

How to Make It

  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar and water until the sugar dissolves.
  2. Add the lemon zest; stir until mixture comes to a boil; reduce heat to low and simmer 5 minutes.
  3. Place a fine strainer over a large bowl and pour syrup mixture through (straining out any zest).
  4. Add lemon juice and vodka to the strained syrup mixture; stir until thoroughly blended.

Ice Cream Maker Method

Transfer mixture to ice cream maker,​ then process according to manufacturer's instructions.

Freezer Method

Pour into a container, cover and place mixture in the freezer. When it is semi-solid, mash it up with a fork and refreeze again. When frozen place in a food processor or blender and process until smooth. Cover and refreeze until ready to serve.
