This delicious sorbet combines basil and lime in a perfect, light dessert. Easy to make without an ice cream maker.
The first time I tried this, it was a little too sour for my family, so for the second batch I added another half cup of simple syrup and it turned out GREAT. Also, it took longer than 2 hours to freeze the mixture (even starting with chilled simple syrup). I think this is best prepared a day in advance. This recipe is so easy and delicious, I will be making it several times this summer! - 25 Jun 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Ran out of lime juice - used lime + lemon + pineapple. Had no basil - used sage. Threw in frozen blackberries. The sorbet was DELICIOUS, just seedy from the blackberries. Yes my username should be FailureToFollowDirections. - 10 Jun 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This is a great martini mixer!! Just add vodka. Garnish with a lime twist and 1 small basil leaf. Beautiful and so refreshing. - 27 Mar 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
