Papaya and Lime Agua Fresca Sorbet

Papaya and Lime Agua Fresca Sorbet

 

8 cups sparkling water

6 cups chopped papaya, plus cubes for garnish

3 cup fresh lime juice, plus 6 to 8 lime wedges for garnish

1 cup sugar syrup – 20/80 sugar to water

2 cups gold tequila

1/4 cup Cointreau, Grand Marnier or Triple Sec

Blend to combine the fizzy water, deseeded papaya, lime juice and sugar syrup.  Blend on high until completely blended and frothy. Transfer to a  lidded freezer proof container , add the tequila and orange liqueur and stir to combine. Freeze for an hour and stir then repeat until frozen if the sorbet is too firm whizz in a food processor. Note:  alcohol doesn’t freeze so this keeps the sorbet lush and slushy

Serve in individual glasses.

Garnish the glass with a lime wedge and a cocktail skewer of sugar frosted papaya cubes.

Enjoy! X

  1. I absolutely positively love Sorbet. I take pints to dinners anytime of year. Once, a group of dinner guests and I got out some spoons, stood right there in the kitchen and shared three cartons of sorbet. We had a blast conversing, laughing, and enjoying our spontaneous actions. SORBET FOREVER!!!
