Last month my mom and I went to Italy to visit my brother and sister-in-law (another post coming on that later). Our group went to a little town called Comacchio near the sea one day and my sister-in-law was on a mission to find a Sorbetini (sorbet & vodka) that I could drink. Unfortunately non of the shops had dairy-free options, so I was stuck sipping limoncello while the others enjoyed their delicious looking frosty beverages (whomp whomp).

Since that day I have been determined to make my own sorbetini and after getting a brand spanking new blender over the weekend, I went for it. Be warned, the recipe below is STRONG! You can make it less so by using 1/2 c vodka and 1/2 c juice or nectar. These are amazing on a hot summer day!

What you will need (makes 2 large drinks):
A blender
1 c vodka
2 c sorbet
1 c ice

1. Remove sorbet from freezer and let soften for about 5 minutes.

2. Add all ingredients to blender and blend baby blend until smooth.

3. Pour into cool martini glasses and prepare for slight brain freeze and tipsiness.

**These would be great with some fresh fruit skewers in them too!

PLEASE drink responsibly!!


  1. These sound amazing!!! I need a new blender to make these!

    1. We just got a Ninja blender, it is awesome!

    2. I'll make a note about it when we start looking for a blender, thanks Ky!

  2. You got the blender you wanted! YAY! Can't wait for you to make a sorbetini for ME!

  3. 1 cup vodka for TWO drinks? Haha I'd have to go with your half cup option... that'd still be 2 oz per drink.

    Sounds yummy!
