Lime Ice with a Splash of Tequila
 
2 cup  water
2 cup  sugar
2 cup  fresh lime juice (from about 15 limes)
3 Tbsp  grated lime zest
3 Tbsp  tequila
 
garnish: 
mint sprigs and thin slices of lime 
 
bring the water to a boil in a 3 quart saucepan and add the sugar. stir 
to dissolve, then turn the heat to very low and simmer for 10 minutes 
while you squeeze the limes. it will thicken slightly. remove the sugar 
syrup from the heat and stir in the lime juice and zest. let sit for 1 
hour. strain the lime mixture into a bowl, and press all the zest against 
the strainer to extract all the juice. stir in the tequila. freeze in an 
ice cream freezer following the manufacturer's instructions, or (just as 
easy), cover and place in the freezer until just about frozen solid, about 
6 hours. if not using the ice-cream freezer, chill 8 individual ramekins, 
sorbet dishes, or small bowls. remove the lime mixture from the freezer 
and cut with a sharp knife into 4 portions. place one portion in a food 
processor fitted with the steel blade and return the bowl with the lime 
mixture to the freezer. break up the mixture in the food processor, using 
the pulse action. turn on the machine and blend thoroughly until the 
mixture is uniform and fluffy. it will be almost white. transfer to 2 
sorbet dishes and place the dishes directly in the freezer. repeat this 
step with the remaining 3 portions. when all of the dishes are filled, 
cover each one with plastic wrap, then with foil to secure. twenty minutes 
before serving, place the sorbets in your refrigerator. serve, garnishing 
each bowl with a thin slice of lime and/or a sprig of mint. serves 8 
advance preparation: this will keep for weeks in the freezer.
