Blueberry Gin Sorbet with Juniper and Rosemary

June 24, 2015

Author Notes: Last summer we were in the middle of a construction project. I had been making the occasional treats to take out to the crew and when asked if they had any flavor requests the responses were "fruit" and "something with booze". So thanks to Brook and Max, the inspiration behind this recipe. Andrea Mazrim

  1. Process all ingredients in blender until smooth. Push through fine mesh strainer into clean container. If you are making a double batch it helps to put it in the freezer for 1-2hours as sorbets are sometimes hard to freeze. Then freeze in your ice cream maker according to manufacturers instructions.
