Recipe by Mrs.Stvnsn
"A fresh-tasting mint-lime sorbet that reflects the flavors of a mojito. The optional rum in the recipe helps the sorbet not freeze too hard if being stored in the freezer. Delicious on its own, and also tasty mixed with rum for a frozen mojito."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

mint leaves, packed
grated lime zest
freshly squeezed lime juice
1 1/2 cups
citrus-flavored sparkling water
To really get the good mint flavor, use 1 cup of mint, and instead of boiling it (boiled mint is not the tastiest in any recipe) bring the sugar and water to a boil, turn off the heat, add the mint leaves, and let it steep for 30 minutes before straining out the leaves and cooling the syrup. I also cut the lime juice to 3/4 cup. I liked it, a lot like a real mojito :)
I have trouble rating this one. I made it just like the directions but I felt it was a little too sour for my liking but I shared it with my mother-in-law and she loved it. It was very sweet and sour so much in fact that I could not taste the mint in it. I plan on making it again but I think I am going to cut the amount of lime juice and lime zest. By the way, to make this recipe according to instructions you will need 5 to 6 fresh limes.
Not the best I've ever had.. I used more mint than it called for and I still can't taste the mint. I love sour, and this is even too much for me.. its hard to eat without puckering! I probably won't make it again.
Tastes like the real thing! Very refreshing!
Yumm! I used even less lime just over 1/4 cup and more mint 1 cup like the other reviews it was awesome (I was looking for more of a sweet effect) plus I added another TBSP of rum and it was Perfection. It is such a great palate cleanser, nice and refreshing!
Perfection! Great balance with mint/lime by using 1 cup mint leaves. I followed someone else's advice and added the leaves after boiling the simple syrup. I also only used 3/4 cup of lime juice. I'm very happy w/the result! So refreshing!
