Ingredients

  • 50g fresh mint (leaves and stalks)
  • 3tbsp white or light rum, plus extra for serving
  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten

Method

  1. Put the sugar with 600ml water into a pan. Heat to dissolve the sugar then bring to the boil. Add the finely grated zest from 2 of the limes and the mint, setting aside 5 leaves. Take off the heat. Cover and leave to stand for 10 mins, then take off the cover. Pour into a bowl and leave to cool at room temperature. Put in the fridge to cool.
  2. Strain into a rigid container, pressing the mint to extract all the flavour. Discard the mint stalks and leaves. Stir in juice from all the limes (about 125ml) and rum. Finely chop the 5 mint leaves and stir in.
  3. Freeze the mixture until almost frozen, check after 2 hours, stir with a fork. Freeze for another couple of hours, then break up into chunks. Put it into a food processor with the egg white and pulse to mix . Freeze again until solid. Use within 3 months.
  4. To serve, put a few mint leaves into chilled glasses, add small scoops of sorbet and another slug of rum, and lime wedges.
