Very refreshing end to a full meal on a warm night. Texture is creamy, like sherbet, but it's quite soft & melts quickly. Any berry would work, and while I made it exactly as written, I may put sliced strawberries alongside it next time we have some.
Because the Limoncello goes through a brief boil, most of the alcohol is vaporized away. As a non-drinker myself, I substitute when I need to though. I looked at the ingredients for a typical Limoncello and calculated the quantities for this substitute;
Zest of one lemon, finely grated with a microplane or grater, no white pith
Scant 1/2 cup water
3 Tbsp sugar
Add these in place of the Limoncello then proceeded with the recipe. The grated zest will give up it's oil during the boil, and get strained out with the mint. Hope this helps!
This looks perfect for a dinner party I am hosting. I'm wondering, however, if you could recommend a great non-alcoholic substitute in place of the limoncello? Thanks.
Sweet and refreshing!
We made this for a five course gourmet dinner. We used it for an intermezzo instead of a dessert so we left out the blackberries and served it in small dessert cups with a mint leaf. All our guests raved. It certainly cleared their palate for the next course!!
Made for Memorial Day supper and served in chilled glasses. Intensely lemony & minty, pretty with the berries & a tiny sprig of mint. A nice, adults-only finish to a sunny day.
Love this!! Will be making it for parties all summer. The lemon and mint combination is just perfect. I didn't have fresh berries, can't wait for them to come into season so I can try the sorbet with them.
This was very easy to make and REALLY good! Very refreshing on a really hot day. Definitely a keeper.
