Christopher Ovenden’s Vodka & Lime Sorbet

This is a real favourite of mine, which I love to serve as a ‘trou normand’ after the main but before cheese, to cleanse the palate. It sounds pompous, but is completely and utterly delicious, and a little bit naughty.




6 limes

220g caster sugar

500ml water

6 tbsps vodka

A sprig of mint to serve


Make a sugar syrup by heating the sugar and water.

Add thin strips of lime peel from 2 of the limes - use a vegetable peeler, don’t grate it.

Slowly bring to the boil then boil for 5 mins.

Allow to cool and remove the lime peel.

Add the squeezed juice of all of the limes and then the vodka.

Churn in an ice-cream maker and freeze. Alternatively, put it in a container in the freezer, and stir with a fork every 20 mins.

Serve small portions and add a sprig of fresh mint.
