These were on offer at Tesco £5 for two and at 4.7% this seemed reasonable for something fairly unique, until I thought “But that’s just when it’s on offer, bloody hell!”
You are meant to freeze them for eight hours, yes eight! Before squishing the packet until the sorbet is a favourable consistency, then empty into a glass. Sounds simple but who knows precisely when they will fancy a drink in eight hours? So I chucked it in the freezer over night. I pulled it out the next day and run it under slightly warm water as suggested on the packet until it felt slushy.
The first thing I noticed was how unbelievably sweet and syrupy this tasted, the second wasn’t the alcohol (intact that was barley traceable) but how thick it was. It acted like a real slushy, were you loudly slurp out all of the flavour for what seems like an hour to be left with masses of ice.
I tried the Lemon Sorbet next. These tasted like old fashioned cloudy lemonade – which I love – with the taste of alcohol much more prevalent. I defrosted this sorbet twice as much as last time and it was fantastic! I can see how someone could get really tipsy on these very quickly.
Bit of a faff but if you get it right, these are fab!
