tequila lime sorbet

I love margaritas.  The sweet and sour lime combined with earthy tequila is probably one of my favorite flavor combinations.  The weather is getting warmer, and I wanted to try my hand at making sorbet so for my first attempt I decided to try a margarita inspired flavor.   I don’t have an ice cream maker, so I wanted to be able to just use my freezer.  I read some techniques online and decided I would use egg white to help add creaminess.  They definitely helped with the texture, although the sorbet still did turn out a bit icy – I think because of the tequila.  The multiple freezing times are necessary to ensure that the egg white blends perfectly into the syrup.  For my first time making sorbet I was very happy, this is delicious and I will try more flavors all summer long, I’m sure.
