Here is a simple recipe to make a refreshing Bleu Passion Sorbet, using Alizé Bleu Passion Vodka. Vodka is the perfect “secret ingredient” in a sorbet. Since it does not freeze, it helps prevent the sorbet from freezing solid. You can enjoy this sorbet as a dessert, refreshing treat or as a palette cleanser between courses.
Bleu Passion Sorbet
- 3/4 Cup Sugar
- 3/4 cup Water
- 3 Cups fresh Honeydew Melon, cubed
- 1 TBSP Lime Juice
- 1/2 TSP Lime Zest
- 6-8 TBSP Alizé Bleu Passion Vodka
In a medium pot, add sugar and water. Stir and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for about 5 minutes. Cover, remove from heat and set aside. Cube about 3 cups of honeydew melon. Remove zest from a lime, then squeeze the juice from half of it.
In your blender, add the melon, zest and lime juice, along with 1/4 cup of the sugar syrup. Once blended, slowly add the remaining syrup to the mixture and continue to blend on low. Now add the Alizé Bleu Passion Vodka. Pour into an airtight container and place in the freezer. Every 30-45 minutes, remove from freezer and mix thoroughly, by scraping the outer frosted edges. Continue to do this about 4-5 times. Afterwards, you should have a nice consistency of sorbet. It should be soft and not frozen solid. If it is solid, let stand for about 15 minutes, or until desired consistency reached.
This sorbet is also fantastic in a frozen cocktail with the Bleu Passion Vodka poured over the top.
This basic recipe can be made in several different flavors, but switching out the fruit, and even the vodka:
- Pineapple and Alizé Gold Passion Vodka or Bleu Passion
- Ruby red grapefruit and Alizé Gold Passion Vodka
- Peach and mango with Alizé Gold Passion Vodka
- Cherries and Alizé Bleu Passion Vodka
The possibilities are endless!
