Sweets | Lemon Sorbet with Citron Vodkavegan

Revised on February 28, 2012

I got the idea for this from a trip to Paris. It was a hot day, the sun was still out when I ate dinner. I don't remember what I had but I do remember having lemon sorbet with vodka for dessert. I always wanted to try making it. Serve with a splash of vodka.

Yield: 1 pint

lemon sorget with citron vodka


1 cup sugar

1 cup water

1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice, strained

2 tablespoons citron vodka



In a saucepan, bring sugar and water to a boil. Reduce to a simmer. Simmer until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool.

Add sugar and water mixture to the lemon juice, holding back a little to adjust at the end. Once you like the sweetness, add vodka.

Chill thoroughly, then freeze in your ice cream maker according to the manufacture's instructions.
