Sweet

Mango Sorbet with Ginger Ale

A summer delight, a spicy fiery gingery hit against the sweet delicious luscious mango!

I whisk up a basic sorbet concoction with mango pulp and a simple lemongrass-infused sugar syrup, set overnight, and then simply toss into a large wine glass, and add a bit of finger ale for fizz. Of course, you have full permission to sub with a chilled prosecco – as I have done countless times!

I did not have a popsicle mould, so I used silicon mini cupcake moulds which I must admit, was a lot of fun to pop into the mouth at any odd time!
