It’s peach season here in Texas and we love our peaches. It seems like it’s been a good year so far and our house couldn’t be happier! So the other night we saw we had a few organic peaches that were ready to be used. It was late and we knew if we didn’t do something with them that night they might not last until morning. We also had a few peaches already in the freezer for smoothies. So we decided to make a sorbet. This past weekend I was sick and congested, and I could still smell them, barely, but I could. And now that I’m feeling better I was so happy to dive into this sorbet today and smell and taste it with all it’s glory!
You could use all frozen, all fresh, or a mixture of fresh and frozen peaches but it doesn’t matter. We had some vodka and since vodka doesn’t freeze we figured it would be a good thing to put in the mixture so that it wouldn’t get too hard. And because liquor and desserts just go together.
This is zesty and tangy. Taste the mixture before freezing, you might want to add more agave to it. I however love zesty and tangy so it was perfect!
I really hope you enjoy this recipe! Simple, easy, delicious, and a perfect August dessert to come home to.
Ginger Peach Sorbet with Vodka
- 3-4 large peaches (frozen, fresh, or both)
- Juice and zest from 1 lemon
- 1 thumb of ginger, grated
- 3/4 – 1 cup vodka
- 2-4 tbsp agave
- Place all ingredients into a high powered blender. You can peel the peaches, but don’t have to. The skin makes the sorbet have texture and more color, but if you want your sorbet completely smooth, peel it first.
- After blending on high for a few minutes, pour into a freezer safe container with a lid. If you don’t have something with a lid, make sure you seal it with plastic wrap to protect it from freezer burn. Freeze overnight or up to 8 hours.
- Spoon out and serve!
