Dragon Fruit (Palinka) Sorbet

Have you heard or tried Palinka? It’s Hungarian liquor that is sooo awful πŸ˜› …. NOT – when I 1st tried it, of course, I totally found it to be awful. Looked harmful and delicious as it was totally clear, just like water πŸ˜› Then a big sip, holy cow! STRONG!

I liked it better with ice and water πŸ˜›

That until I found Honey Palinka! Now, this is TRULY delicious!

I even like it more when I used it to make this sorbet πŸ˜€

If you cannot find Palinka, don’t fret, you can use Schnapps with similar flavor or even omit it, especially if the sorbet is for kids πŸ™‚

1 dragon fruit (makes 2 servings)

at least 4 tbsp Palinka Honey Peach (depending how strong you’d like it to be)

Fresh juice of a lemon

150 ml simple syrup (recipe follows)

Halve a dragon fruit and scoop out the flesh and place it into a blender.

Wash and pat dry the skins, bag them in a ziplock and chill them in the freezer until sorbet is ready to be served.

Pour Palinka, lemon juice and simple syrup into the blender, process for 1-2 minuets (mixture will turn white as shown on picture).

Pour mixture into a container and freeze for 3 H.

Take out container from freezer and dump sorbet into blender and process again for another 2 minutes.

Pour back mixture into container and freeze again for another 3 H.

Repeat step one more time, and after freezing, scoop out sorbet into frozen skin and serve.
