Recipe For Watermelon And Tequila Sorbet

Head straight on to the recipe for Watermelon And Tequila Sorbet ♥

With watermelon at its prime and summer being so hot, a sorbet was in order. Tequila is one of those spirits you either love or hate. Dave is not a huge fan of tequila shots but I love them. I decided to add the tequila to my watermelon sorbet to make a boozy treat to help us cool down.

Watermelon And Tequila Sorbet
Watermelon And Tequila Sorbet

The best man at my cousins’ wedding gave the most amazing speech I have ever heard. The theme was #GrowingUpCritchie, referring to the name of the groom. He spoke about how they met, learning life lessons and how they reconnected many times in different places. In Grahamstown three young men came together over some drinks, lamenting break ups and bad relationships. Harry and Craig lived together while studying at Rhodes University and when Craig found himself in need of a place to stay in Cape Town he contacted Harry who was living in a dodgy area of Cape Town. As soon as he spoke of the Bad Machine workshop, next to the railway tracks where he was ‘squatting’, Dave and I looked at each other and mouthed “Peter Forbes”. You see, Dave and I knew Peter through movie work. It was a connection to Harry and so after the speeches were over I went to chat to him about his time living on the very open plan mezzanine level of a metal shop. As we got talking and I asked him what he does for a living and how he got to live overseas, he mentioned something about wine. And then another connection came to pass. I had met Harry at a Food Bloggers Conference where he gave an amazing talk and performed a sabrage that I filmed. It just goes to show how small the world really is. And so, given that our connection was alcohol related, and his connection to Craig was also booze filled I decided I would share this recipe for a watermelon and tequila sorbet in honour of connections. Have you ever met someone you have a connection to that you only discovered when you started talking?

  2. Love this recipe for both the tequila and the watermelon. I know you use fructose – would glucose be a suitable replacement? If you’re unsure, that’s fine. I seem to bump into people in the strangest places, often in other countries who know someone or other. The world is huge and small at the very same time.
