lime sorbet with vodka

Not at all linked to costuming but if you are at all into making yummy things, you HAVE to try this. It is a simple yet VERY good recipe for lime sorbet I got from my sister-in-law.

500g sugar
750ml water
8 limes (finely grated zest and juice)

heat the water slowly and add the sugar, stir and heat until it is dissolved (doesn't require boiling), then add the lime juice and zest (I strongly recommend hot yet not too hot water/sugar, so the lime taste is not destroyed), it is hot enough when you have just nicely dissolved the sugar. stir well. Pour it into a container that can be put into the freezer (I've used a square IKEA plastik thingy). leave to cool for a bit, then put it into the freezer. You can stir occasionally to check the "freeze-state", but you can also just leave it there over night. Then take a nice amount and put it into a glass bowl, add about 2cl of Vodka (we found Grasovska works really well with it, but you can also try other vodka or gin or whatever you prefer) and enjoy.
