Nothing says Cinco de Mayo like a margarita, but how about something a little different? This refreshing sorbet features fresh lime juice, agave syrup, tequila blanco, and a sweetly spicy salt topping. My healthy Cinco de Mayo menu is below.
Adding a small amount of alcohol to sorbets improves their texture and keeps them from freezing rock-solid. The texture of this is creamy and smooth and the tequila adds a lovely flavor but it’s such a small amount that it’s still family-friendly.
When I was in Thailand years ago, dessert was very simple: super-fresh tropical fruit served with a mixture of large-crystal salt, sugar, and hot pepper flakes to dip it in. The combination really brought out the flavor in the mango and pineapple. For this sorbet topping, I thought back to that idea, and also used a technique from Joy the Baker’s cookbook to infuse the salt with more of the lime flavor.
