Today I effortlessly picked 500 grams of berries - and there is at least twice as many left for tomorrow and tomorrow and....
There are many uses for the berries - the one most obvious to Danes is this delicacy. But I've already baked those and made cordial so today I decided to make sorbet.
I blended the fresh berries with the juice of one lime and passed the mush through a sieve to get rid of the little seeds. Then I added a simple sirup made from 1 dl sugar and 1 dl water.
The liquid was poured into a square shallow baking tin and placed in the freezer. I scraped through it after 30 minutes and 1 hour to minimize crystals and got a very nice sorbet out of it.
I don't know if I was already subconsciously planning a cocktail but I certainly had a lot of ideas when the thought hit me. I settled on the tried and true mix of raspberry and gin -but since I knew that the sorbet was on the sweet side I added Campari to balance it out:
- 3 cl Campari
- 6 cl Gin - I used Old English Gin
- 1 dl of raspberry sorbet
Pour into glass over ice and garnish with raspberry and pretty flower.
