Margarita Sorbet fit for a King….or Queen

September 7, 2012

This is my husband after he realised there were 75 margaritas on the menu.


If there’s a drink of choice for Stud, its definitely Margaritas.

All flavours, all types, he doesnt discriminate. Although he does always go back to the original. To him, its still the best.

Needless to say, that evening was a bit messy for both of us lol.

A little while ago, Claire from Claire K Creations contacted me to see if I would be interested in trying some of Queen’s new gelato range. Yes, yes I would :)

Every baker knows Queen. Be it for their food colourings or flavourings, they’re a trusted, Australian owned company thats well worth supporting on a shelf filled with overseas brands. Now they’ve brought out a gelato range, with a quality to match any good gelataria in Rome, and it’s found exclusively in Woolworth’s :D

The challenge was simple – make it my own. A foodies dream!

Margarita it is then! Warning parents: This is an adults only recipe. Perhaps one for the parents that have put the kids to bed and need a good wind down? Or those who’ve had a hard day at work? Actually, Margarita time is any time in this household ;)

The first thing I noticed about the instructions? Its just that. Damn. Easy. Anyone can do it! Winging it a little with my additions, I produced a gorgeously cream sorbet that Stud has already demolished.It seriously couldnt be any easier. You mix the Queen packet with either milk or water (folowing packet instructions), pop it in te freezer for 20 minutes or so, churn it in an ice-cream machine and voila – or should I say “ecco”?

Margarita Sorbet


1 x Queen Lemon sorbet sachet
700ml cold water
1 lime, zested and juiced
1/2 cup tequila
1tsp salt


Add water, sachet and lime zest to the bowl of an electric mixer and mix on medium speed for 5 minutes or until dissolved.

Place in the freezer for 20 minutes.

Combine lime juice, tequila and salt.

Prepare ice-cream maker as per instructions and churn sorbet mixture for around half an hour, or until thick and creamy.

Slowly add tequila mix. You may need to jiggle it around slightly to incorporate tequila.

It will get a little watery at this stage, power through it.

Once combined, place in a flat container in the freezer overnight.

Scoop in to a salt rimmed glass and serve ;)
