Picture of Luscious Lemon Sorbet - With a kick
This is a sweet lemon sorbet with a beautiful hot sauce kick

Its very smooth, when you take a spoonful you get the cold sweet sensation of the ice and sugar followed by the the sour taste of the lemon finished off with a warm ( to fiery) kick at the end.

If you have never had hot flavoured ice cold sorbet before then the new feelings are are very different, exciting and unforgettable
I will never forget my first hot favoured sorbet - Coconut and fresh chili ............but that's another instructable, We are playing with hot sauce today.

The great thing about this recipe is that you can control how hot the 'kick' is - you can experiment with the recipe. This is also a great dessert for that special person you know who puts hot sauce on EVERYTHING. If you are a hot sauce connoisseur you can use different brands to see which sauces delicate under tones lend themselves to this recipe

I always add an ounce or two of vodka and it doesn't freeze all the way. You can use all different kinds of fruit juice or slurried fruit and have great home made desserts with the amount of sugar you want. Good 'ible.

Great tip to make a adult sorbet :)
I guess they are sort of like jello shots. The great thing about sorbets is that you can make them from almost any fruit and in no time at all. People with milk intolerance can have their cold deserts too.
