Mango on Martini, Rhum in Martini, Rhum in Mango

MangoSorbet Had some mangoes that were minutes away from expiration. their skin shriveled up like a geriatric bachelor in his mother’s basement, though the meat is sweeter. Something had to be done.

So here is a recipe for a simple Mango sorbet, perfect since it was a hot and humid afternoon. Came out sweet, smooth, palate refreshing.

Mango Sorbet

4 mangoes
1 cup simple syrup
3 tbsp lime juice
2 tbsp rhum

  1. Cut mango along the bone, and remove meat with the help of a glass rim
  2. Transfer meat to blender
  3. Add syrup and lime juice
  4. Spike with some rhum
  5. Puree until smooth
  6. Transfer to plastic container
  7. Place in freezer
  8. After one hour, mix with spoon to break the ice crystals
  9. Do this every hour until you have a smooth, uniform frozen texture
  10. Keep covered
  11. Serve on a chilled martini glass

You can do this too with the help of an ice cream machine, but where is the heart in that?

If you have made this, please take a picture, and post it up. I would like to hear how you built up from this simple sorbet recipe.
