Having visited Italy recently, I’ve grown to love Limoncello, it’s so refreshing on the palate. Decided to try my hand at some sorbet.

 

Makes approx 10 scoops.

2 cups water

1 1/3 cup sugar

1/2 cup Limoncello

1 cup fresh lemon juice (about 6 large lemons)

 

1. Combine water, sugar and Limoncello in a pan and bring to the boil, stirring until the sugar dissolves (approx 5 mins)

2. Remove from heat and add lemon juice, set aside allowing to completely cool.

3. Strain mixture through a sieve into a freezable container, discarding any solids.

4. After approx 2-3 hours, remove from freezer and stir around, put back into freezer, after 1 more hour, remove and stir again. Return to freezer for 1 more hour or until solid. Should be ready to serve. Lovely and refreshing for those long summer nights.

Option:- you can also add some mint, which is also delicious.
