Lime Sherbet Gin & Tonic Float
You could make the sherbet, scoop it into a cup or cone and leave it at that, but where’s the fun in that. You know you want a float.
- 1 c mashed avocado
- 2 c mashed honeydew melon
- 1 c custard apple flesh
- ½ c lime juice, divided
- 1 – 2 Tbsp maple syrup
- sea salt
- ice cubes
- lime wedges
Blend avocado, 1 c honeydew, ¼ c lime juice, maple syrup and a tiny pinch of sea salt until smooth. Scrape into a freezer-safe container. Blend custard apple, 1 c honeydew and ¼ c lime juice until smooth, scrape into another freezer-safe container. Freeze both containers until solid.
Remove from freezer and set on bench for 5 mins or so to soften slightly. Pop avocado mixture out of container, chop roughly and blend to create a soft-serve texture. Scrape into a bowl and repeat process with custard apple mixture. Dollop soft-serve mixtures alternately into a large freezer-safe container, swirl gently with the tip of a knife and return to freezer.
Remove from freezer 5 minutes before scooping. Place a handful of ice and a scoop or three of lime sherbet in a glass. Pour over a shot or three of gin and a splash of tonic. Serve with lime.
- To prepare custard apple scoop flesh from skin and remove black seeds before pureeing.
- Yes, you could make a float with any thing you wish including sparkling water, lemon soda, cream soda or even sparkling wine.
