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):
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!!
