Mint Sorbet Julep

Lately, I’ve been getting reacquainted with an old favorite, whiskey. But, not as in jack and coke whiskey. Luckily for me, my tastes have evolved to appreciate the flavor and less sugary sweetness. I’ve also been really into mint juleps this summer. Must be the heat and days spent lazing on the porch. A classic mint julep really is a fantastic porch sipping drink on a scorching day. With this in mind, we decided to try something crazy, the mint sorbet julep.

I used this recipe. You’ll need a lot of fresh mint. Make a syrup, let it sit overnight in the fridge.

Bust out your handy dandy ice cream maker and spin away for approximately 30 minutes.

I love how white the sorbet came out. If you only saw the greenish-brown syrup before spinning. I have to admit, I had my doubts.

The night before you want to indulge in this drink, scoop out the sorbet and place on a chilled sheet pan lined with parchment. Freeze the balls of sorbet overnight. The next day, drop one ball of sorbet into a glass and pour in a shot of whiskey. Enjoy immediately.
