What To Drink As The Temperature Soars? A Grown up Gin And Tonic Slushie.

Gin and tonic has always been my cocktail of choice. Particularly so on a hot and balmy night. Today in Sydney the temperatures soared to an unseasonally warm 37 C. Definitely time for a refreshing Bombay Sapphire with tonic and lime. Just one small hiccup. There were no limes to be found anywhere in the house. Rummaging through the freezer I did discover a tub of Pineapple and Tahitian Lime Sorbet, courtesy of Weis’.  They say necessity is the mother of invention. My solution? A Grown up Gin and Tonic Slushie. Blitz together the sorbet and gin. Pour into a glass. Top with tonic water. Garnish with mint. Unconventional? Perhaps. Delicious? Absolutely.

Grown up Gin and Tonic Slushie
Serves 1

30 ml gin
1/2 cup sorbet, lime or lemon flavoured
tonic water to fill the glass
a sprig of mint to garnish

PLACE the sorbet and gin into a jug and blend with a hand-held stick blender until well combined but still slushy.
POUR into a glass, top with tonic water, garnish with mint leaves and serve immediately.

    I have to show your post to Stefano! I don’t drink hard liquors but he does! This looks so refreshing! 🙂

    • I hope he approves. We are having friends over on Saturday night for a pre dinner drink before heading off to a local Italian restaurant. No surprises guessing what we will be drinking, although I’m thinking I may use a crisp dry prosecco in place of the tonic water.

  2. Great idea – will make some up for Sunday…
