Cool, Clean Dessert: Gin and Tonic Sorbet

Cool, Clean Dessert: Gin and Tonic Sorbet

Love the cool, crisp flavor of a gin and tonic during cocktail hour? Lucky for us, there's no good reason that fragrant lime flavor has to be relegated to a cocktail shaker. Why not bring it on over to the dessert side of things? 

If you've ever made sorbet at home, you know that it's relatively easy: the ingredient list is rather short and it produces cool, refreshing dairy-free desserts. This recipe is so wonderful because it's basically taking the gin and tonic cocktail and freezing it into a sorbet — for that reason, it's quite strong, so just be aware of that. The Boys Club contributor, Peter Georgakopoulos, says "This can easily be served as a palate cleanser between courses or as a grand finish to your next dinner party." A delicious conversation starter? Sign me up!

In addition to the simple ingredient list, I love that you actually don't need an ice cream machine to tackle the sorbet  — you can do it easily by hand. It'll take a little longer, so you can start it the night before and it'll be in perfect shape by the time guests start arriving. The flavor is pure and clean, and the finish is refreshing. A good recipe to try now so you can truly perfect it by the time summer heat really kicks into gear!
