Lime Sherbet and a Gin & Tonic Float

Lime Sherbet and a Gin & Tonic Float

Remember when I made those Key Lime Ombre Popsicles? Well it turns out I had more popsicle liquid than patience to make more popsicles — and in a flash of genius I figured that the combinations would make pretty good sorbets. What I didn’t count on was that when frozen, whipped and swirled the texture and flavour of the resulting frozen concoction was the stuff childhood memories are made of. You see we didn’t often have ice cream in the freezer growing up but I have a very distinct memory of rainbow swirled tubs of tangy citrus sherbet… Now I could have just scooped the sherbet into a bowl or on to a cone and left it at that — but then I couldn’t have made a animation of an overflowing float. And I don’t recall the rainbow sherbet ever being added to a Gin & Tonic but that certainly didn’t stop me from doing it here. You’re welcome.
