“A fresh-tasting mint-lime sorbet that reflects the flavors of a mojito. The optional rum in the recipe helps the sorbet not freeze too hard if being stored in the freezer. Delicious on its own, and also tasty mixed with rum for a frozen mojito.”

Directions

  1. Heat the water, sugar, and mint leaves in a saucepan over medium heat, and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes to extract the mint flavor. Set the mixture aside to cool, and strain out the mint leaves.
  2. Pour the cooled mint mixture, lime zest, lime juice, sparkling water, and rum into a bowl and mix well. Pour into the container of an ice cream maker, and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions. Serve immediately for a softer texture, or freeze in a sealed container for a harder sorbet. Let hard-frozen sorbet thaw a few minutes before serving.

To really get the good mint flavor, use 1 cup of mint, and instead of boiling it (boiled mint is not the tastiest in any recipe) bring the sugar and water to a boil, turn off the heat, add the mint leaves, and let it steep for 30 minutes before straining out the leaves and cooling the syrup. I also cut the lime juice to 3/4 cup. I liked it, a lot like a real mojito :)

I have trouble rating this one. I made it just like the directions but I felt it was a little too sour for my liking but I shared it with my mother-in-law and she loved it. It was very sweet and sour so much in fact that I could not taste the mint in it. I plan on making it again but I think I am going to cut the amount of lime juice and lime zest. By the way, to make this recipe according to instructions you will need 5 to 6 fresh limes.

Not the best I've ever had.. I used more mint than it called for and I still can't taste the mint. I love sour, and this is even too much for me.. its hard to eat without puckering! I probably won't make it again.
