Author Notes: This is a ginger beer sherbet made with some coconut milk, and guys, it's amazing. I started off meaning to make a Dark and Stormy sorbet based on a recipe from Serious Eats, but then I forgot about adding the rum at the end. I also didn't add the freshly grated ginger or the lime zest, and it's still awesome.

The frozen ginger beer is zippy and refreshing, and the coconut milk just rounds it out slightly with a light creaminess and nuttiness. I served this after a New England clambake, and it was kind of just the best thing ever. ^_^

Food52 Review: The first spoonful tasted like it should be 5 o’clock somewhere. A little salt and coconut with a candied ginger finish. I liked that both the ingredient list and my effort were minimal, leaving most of the work to the ice cream maker and freezer. My only concerns were whether the temperature and fat content of the coconut milk being used mattered. Next time I would go a little bit lighter on the salt and sugar for my taste, and add a bit of rum for that little extra something. FeedTheMia
