Tequila-Lime Sorbet

I found this recipe this week while looking for an Untried Recipe for Tequila.  I didn't really think about making it, to be honest.  However, I've been sick all week and had already cancelled plans for the Kentucky Derby and Cinco de Mayo, that I felt I had to have a little tequila.  While driving home yesterday, I reminded myself to put the ice cream maker in the freezer.

How easy!  This was so simple to make.

D thought it was a bit too sweet so he put some salt in his. You could definitely add shots to it and make it more alcoholic.  We both thought you also could replace the lime and tequila with lemon and vodka.

Definitely will have again.

Tequila-Lime Sorbet

Serve this refreshing sorbet after a spicy Mexican meal or summer barbecue as a way to tame the heat and end things on a sweet note. Lime juice, sugar, and water are the main ingredients, but a small splash of tequila livens up the flavors.

I think I might have to buy an ice cream maker so that I can make this. You had me at tequila, which is odd because tequila makes me uncontrollably sick (like some weird allergic reaction). I like the idea of making this with alcohol in general.
