With the warmer weather Sir Graeme and I have been enjoying the occasional after-work drink. His preferred tipple is a rare and ancient concoction known as beer, while I’ve been enjoying both traditional and experimental cocktails. The fruity blends are best at this time of year, and got me thinking that an alcoholic sorbet would be the coolest thing.
Some time later, back in the Lab (aka my kitchen), I thought I’d don my (daughter’s pink) lab coat and do some experimenting of my own. And I’ll now bring you the results – one new cocktail each week leading up to the Silly Season.
- 20mL favourite vodka
- 10mL St Germain elderflower liqueur
- 15mL lemon juice
- 80mL (small) scoop Serendipity Green Apple sorbet
- a dash Star Anis apple balsamic (yes! really!!)
Muddle-mash (that’s the technical term) the green apple sorbet with the lemon juice until smooth, then add the vodka and elderflower liqueur. Mix again, add a dash of apple balsamic, and swirl before pouring into your chosen glass. Garnish if you feel it necessary… and then sit back and sip.
