This past June, we shared our unique Blood Orange Margarita recipe with Amoretti Blog readers. The recipe was such a hit that we decided to create a spin-off dessert recipe: the Blood Orange Margarita Sorbet. This recipe is somewhere between a cocktail and a dessert. It doesn’t have quite enough tequila to be a cocktail, but it’s also not quite sweet enough for everyone to classify it as a dessert. Whatever it is, we love it, and we think you will, too!
Blood Orange Margarita Sorbet
- 4 oz lime sorbet
- 1 oz añejo tequila
- 1 pump Amoretti Premium Blood Orange Syrup
- sugar (for rimming)
- lime wedge (for rimming)
Chill a small glass. (A margarita glass will be much too big.) Rim glass with a lime wedge and then rim in a plate of sugar. Scoop the lime sorbet into the glass. Squirt one pump of blood orange syrup over the sorbet. Pour the one ounce of tequila onto the blood orange syrup and sorbet. Serve with a spoon, and sip the rest!
