Sorbet Mojitos

If you are looking to make yourself some cocktails or entertain guests  then you should absolutely try this. I am not sure whether to call it a cocktail or a dessert. All I know is, sorbet meets a mojito.

Fruit based cocktails are one of my favourites. I tell myself its all part of my 5 a day fruit and veg . What I love about mojitos is that they are fancy and yet easy to put together. And this mango mojito sorbet float is no exception. The mango rum sorbet is sweet and fruity, with . And it will definitely impress guests.  Make the mango rum sorbet a couple of days before you plan to serve.  Gives the mango and rum more time to marinate, right!!!

The mango sorbet is pretty simple to make. It takes 4 ingredients, mango flesh, rum, water and sugar. Make sugar syrup with equal amounts of water and sugar and leave to cool. Remove the skin and slice off the flesh of two mango then puree. Mix together the mango puree, rum and sugar syrup , then chill in fridge overnight. Once chilled, pour into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturers instructions.

Once you are ready to serve, muddle together lime wedges and mint leaves. Scoop into glasses the mango rum sorbet and top with soda water. The more sorbet you add the better.
