Mango Schnapps Sorbet with Basil

One of those delicious recipes that look hard but are actually incredibly easy to pull off. The main ingredient is fresh!. Fresh everything including handpicked basil. Fresh is the whole reason I started to whip natches of this up. Someone oh-so-dear dropped off tons of over ripe mango's and I thought to myself we'll never be able to eat all these... then sorbet popped in my mind. Digging out the ice cream maker we got to work.

I used this recipe at All, only I added 1 eggwhite whipped and, as always, I found myself doctoring it up with 2 Tablespoons of Peachtree Schnapps liqueur. Then I added some basil when serving it but if you really enjoy the herbal flavor add a leaf or two during the preparation of the sorbet.

Right around the time I was happily creating various verities I saw this article in Page Six Magazine, Getting The Scoop on Sorbet, which shows some crazy NYC blends. How about cocktail sauce sorbet or mango mustard? Well I'll save those for later and start experimenting on frozen yogurt next. Keep on the lookout for more Bring This features to come.
