Sorbet With Vodka and Lime Zest

Dessert Meets Happy Hour: Sorbet With Citrus Vodka and Lime Zest

If you happen to find yourself in need of a fast but sexy dish to close out a meal, try the simple combination of sorbet and vodka. It works particularly well for large parties on warm days. While it may not be kid-friendly, you can always opt to simply leave out the vodka and still enjoy a scoop or two of sorbet with lime zest.

This combination of ingredients has been my mother's go-to dinner party dessert for years and years. And each time she serves this, people are always impressed by its martini glass presentation and simple sophistication. All you need is your favorite citrus sorbet (I used lemon and blood orange sorbet from Ciao Bella), citrus vodka, and lime zest. For the recipe, read on.
