Thirsty Thursday: Gettin a buzz from Sorbet?

Normally we try and bring you a drink that you could attempt to make at home but this week I found something so special I had to share it even if most of you will not have the tools to make it. If you do have the necessary equipment in your home bar, well you sir are doing very well for yourself. My hat is off to you.

Bourbon Cherry Sorbet


Simple Syrup
Cherry Sauce
Maker's Mark

I hear you saying it already. "Hey I have all that stuff why can't I make it at home?"
Well you could probably create a bastard version of it with a blender and letting it set in your fridge but it's not going to be the same unless you have this bad boy.


No, not Chef Mitch from Beta by Sabor, although it would probably help to have him show you how to use this machine. I'm guessing most of you don't have a mixer with a liquid nitrogen tank attached to it.

Why is it so good? It has to do with the speed that the water freezes. The water isn't given enough time to do its normal snowflake crystallization thing. It freezes so fast that rather then tasting icy it tastes creamy like an ice cream. The quick freeze also keeps the flavors separated. You get the bite and warmth from the bourbon before you taste the cold cherry flavor of the sorbet and the contrast is amazing. It also looks really cool when you make one.

Go get yourself one as soon as possible.

Look forward to seeing more from Mitch and Beta coming up soon!
