Blueberry Gin Tonic Sorbet

I can assure you this sorbet is absolutly amazing, refreshing, fruity, with a touch of gin and a great option to make hot summer days cooler, you will really surprise your guests!

You can serve it scooped but it is really tasty and nice when sorbet starts melting, it is just fantastic.

Makes about 8 scoops

250 g blueberries
75 g sugar
2 tablespoons gin
2 cups of tonic water
1/4 cup lemon juiced (or lime)

Make a syrup in a saucepan with the sugar and 1/2 of tonic water, stir frequently until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat, add lemon juice and let it cool down.

Put blueberries in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until well combined. You can taste it and make any adjustments according your taste.

Pour the mixture in a freezer-proof container and refrigerate it for 45 minutes. After this period remove from freezer and mix it well. Repeat this process 2 times more.

If you have an ice cream maker place the mixture in the fridge once you mixed all the ingredients and let it cool down and after follow the machine's directions to freeze the sorbet. Store in the freezer until firm, at least 4 hours.

I suggest to topping it with some fresh blueberries and a slice of lemon or lime.

Enjoy this lovely sorbet
