Mint Julep Sorbet Recipe
Modern automatic ice cream freezers take the work out of making frozen desserts. They are very inexpensive, too. Warehouse stores feature them in the spring for under $50. With these machines, a chilled liquid an be made into a frozen mixture in about 20 minutes with only enough hands-on time to pour a mixture into the frozen bowl. Although the sorbet can be served right out of the ice cream machine, it has a better texture if allowed to sit in the freezer for a few hours; it can be made a week or so ahead.

1 1/2 cups sugar
2 cups packed fresh mint leaves
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
1/3 cup Kentucky Bourbon
