Boozy Sorbet 🧡 They are boozy and perfect made with prosecco and gin. I had some friends coming over and I wanted to make them a new and fun drink, so I froze the cantaloupe the night before. My friends went absolutely nuts for this, and I’m sure you will too.

Why You’ll Love Boozy Sorbet

If you are looking for a new summer drink, this is for you! This Boozy Cantaloupe Sorbet is sooo easy to make, refreshing and delicious! It’s perfect for this hot summer weather. The olive oil adds richness to the sorbet and gives it that soft taste. I have a rule of never putting something in a recipe that is not meant to be eaten. The basil leaf in this case is meant to be eaten to enhance the flavor even more.

How To Prepare Boozy Sorbet

❄️ First, cube the cantaloupe pretty small and freeze overnight.

🍈 Secondly, add the melon to the food processor with the lemon, honey, gin and olive oil.

🌟 Then, process until smooth.

🍾 Lastly, top with prosecco and basil.

Substitutions and Variations

  1. You can use your alcohol of choice, such as vodka, or tequila instead of gin.
  2. If you are not a fan of cantaloupe, you can substitute it for your favorite fruit, like my Cucumber Gin Sorbet!
  3. You can top with mint instead of basil.

Chef Nadia’s Tip

Chop the cantaloupe pretty small so it is easier to process.
