Day 3 in this week dedicated to sorbet and booze combinations. Today's is the perfect night cap. A bourbon straight-up with a slightly spicy, decidedly refreshing scoop of ginger-lime sorbet.
Be sure to check out all the recipes and combinations from this glorious week of sorbet + booze:
BOURBON NEAT with GINGER-LIME SORBET
1 tbsp fresh grated Ginger
Zest of 1 Lime
Juice of 1 Lime
2 cups Water
3/4 cup Sugar
2 tbsp Domaine de Canton Ginger Liqueur*
Peel ginger with a vegetable peeler and grate over saucepan. Add lime zest, lime juice, water, and sugar.
Stirring frequently, bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Allow to boil for 10 minutes.
Chill until cool.
Add ginger liqueur.
Freeze in ice cream maker according to directions.
*Not only does the liqueur add a delicious but subtle flavor, a little alcohol in the sorbet ensures a slushier texture that won't freeze into an unmanageable block of ice.
1 shot Bourbon
1 splash Water
1 scoop Ginger-Lime Sorbet
Add splash of water to shot of bourbon in rocks glass. Serve with scoop of sorbet.
