Prickly Pear-Margarita Sorbet

Prickly Pear-Margarita


I came up with this wonderful sorbet years ago, it’s still a family favorite.

Juice and pulp from 6 key limes (remove seeds)

zest of 1 lime

1 cup sugar

2 Tbl. 100% Agave Tequila

1/4 cup corn syrup

2 1/2 cups very cold water (use bottled)

1 Tbl prickly pear syrup

Stir the tequila, water, sugar, and corn syrup, until sugar dissolves. Stir in lime juice, lime zest, and prickly pear syrup.

Transfer ingredients to an ice-cream maker and follow manufacturer's instructions.

Put the sorbet in the freezer for 10 minutes before serving. Sorbet will be hard enough to scoop into servings. Garnish with mint leaf and wedge of lime.
