Ingredients

  • 1 cup water

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • ½ cup mint leaves, packed

  • ¼ cup grated lime zest

  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice

  • 1 ½ cups citrus-flavored sparkling water

  • 2 tablespoons rum (Optional)

Directions

  1. Heat the water, sugar, and mint leaves in a saucepan over medium heat, and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes to extract the mint flavor. Set the mixture aside to cool, and strain out the mint leaves.

  2. Pour the cooled mint mixture, lime zest, lime juice, sparkling water, and rum into a bowl and mix well. Pour into the container of an ice cream maker, and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions. Serve immediately for a softer texture, or freeze in a sealed container for a harder sorbet. Let hard-frozen sorbet thaw a few minutes before serving.
