I wanted a Tequila inspired recipe for National Tequila Day tomorrow and given that I’m due with baby number two any day now, I needed the help of our guest blogger and party Mamma, Irene! she created this recipe just for you to serve at your next summer party!
Thursday July 24th is National Tequila Day! What better way to honour this day and National Ice Cream Month by making my Lime Mint Tequila Sorbet Shooters. These are a refreshing and fun way to celebrate summer with friends by the pool or at your backyard patio gatherings.
Happy National Tequila Day!!
Lime Mint Tequila Sorbet Shooters
(Makes 12 shot glass size servings)
2 cups water
1 cup sugar
Zest and juice of 4 large limes
½ cup of fresh mint leaves
1 egg white
2 ½ Tbsp of your favourite Tequila
Salt for rimming
1. Heat the water, sugar, and mint leaves in a saucepan over medium heat, and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Set the mixture aside to cool and to extract the mint flavour. Once completely cooled, strain the mixture in a bowl to remove the mint leaves.
2. Add the lime juice, zest, tequila and mix well. In a separate bowl beat egg white to a meringue. Add meringue to the lime mixture and beat on low until incorporated.
3. Pour mixture in an air tight plastic container and freeze overnight.
Note: When serving top up with additional Tequila!!
We cannot wait to be able to try one of these refreshing little shooters!
