Gin and Tonic Sorbet Shooters

Who Doesn’t Love An Adult Sorbet!

The refreshing flavor of Gin, lime, mint and Juniper berries makes for a delightful summertime treat, if only in ‘shooter size’ portions!

Gin and Tonic

Juniper berries have long been used to give Mediterranean food a distance aromatic flavor in cooking meats, sausage and slow simmered stews.

Remembering also, that juniper berries are what also give gin the distinct flavor. To intensify the flavor of the juniper berries I have allowed them to steep in gin, using the alcohol to extract a stronger tincture and flavor of the berry.

Since we are limited to the amount of liquor we can use in these delightful sorbets, since a higher alcohol content will prevent the sorbet from freezing, the extra juniper flavor intensifies the subtle gin presence in the fun frozen shooters.

Sorbet Shooters

These little treats can be made with or without an ice cream machine. Simply freeze the mixture until it is firm enough to scoop into little ball-shapes, placed in mini-cups and kept in the freezer until ready to ‘throw back’!
