Serves: 8 Ingredients 200g caster sugar 300ml water 300ml strained lemon juice (about 6 large lemons) 3 tbsp lemon vodka Method Put the caster sugar and the water in a small saucepan and over a medium-low heat. Heat the pan gently, stirring, until the sugar has completely dissolved. Bring to the boil and boil steadily for 5 minutes (without stirring), or until the solution has attained the consistency of a thin syrup. Leave to cool, then stir in the lemon juice, and the lemon vodka. Pour the lemon mixture into a shallow container and freeze for an hour. Remove from the freezer and beat with an electric mixer until smooth, then return to the freezer. Repeat this procedure twice to produce a smooth, fine-textured sorbet, then leave to freeze until very firm. Serve in scoops. If serving to children omit the vodka!
