Hibiscus Mint Sorbet

Frozen with gin for the win!

Can’t get to the beach to escape the heat? Cool down with an adult Slurpee!

Start by making fresh Hibiscus/Mint tea/lemonade.

  • Put 1-1/2 cups sugar in pan
  • Add 2-1/2 cups of water
  • Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar
  • Remove from heat
  • Add 6 hibiscus tea bags
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
  • Cover and let steep for 10 minutes
  • Strain out the leaves and tea bags and allow to cool
  • Add 1 cup fresh lemon juice

The tea/lemonade is already a nice, refreshing beverage. But if you want to turn it into a delicious adult frozen beverage, get out your blender (to serve 4):

  • Add 6 oz Hendrick’s gin
  • 1 cup of the Hibiscus-tea-lemonade
  • 1 cup of diet 7-up
  • 5 cups of crushed ice

Blend until smooth. Adding the carbonated 7-up before blending gives the iced drink an interesting, Slurpee-like texture.

Serve in a wine glass and garnish with a mint leaf.
