About this recipe: This mint and lime sorbet is great for dessert or refreshing the palate in between courses. It has a certain mojito flavour. Rum helps the sorbet from freezing too hard.
If citrus-flavoured sparkling water is available, substitute this in instead.
To really get the good mint flavor, use 1 cup of mint, and instead of boiling it (boiled mint is not the tastiest in any recipe) bring the sugar and water to a boil, turn off the heat, add the mint leaves, and let it steep for 30 minutes before straining out the leaves and cooling the syrup. I also cut the lime juice to 3/4 cup. I liked it, a lot like a real mojito - 17 Feb 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I have trouble rating this one. I made it just like the directions but I felt it was a little too sour for my liking but I shared it with my mother-in-law and she loved it. It was very sweet and sour so much in fact that I could not taste the mint in it. I plan on making it again but I think I am going to cut the amount of lime juice and lime zest. By the way, to make this recipe according to instructions you will need 5 to 6 fresh limes. - 07 Sep 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Not the best I've ever had.. I used more mint than it called for and I still can't taste the mint. I love sour, and this is even too much for me.. its hard to eat without puckering! I probably won't make it again. - 25 Sep 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
