Jalapeño Citrus Sorbet

Recently, I spoke with a restaurant owner regarding trends in the food world. Desserts, drinks, food, preparation methods, tools. And for dessert, he mentioned sweet with heat. Ice cream with chili. And I did a little bit of a backflip. Because I love sweet heat, as you may remember. It’s my thing and it makes me infinitely happy.

And thus, from that conversation was this treat inspired. Jalapeño citrus sorbet. Originally, I wanted to go with lemon jalapeño. But then, I figure why the hell not add limes, too? Be warned, this isn’t for the timid. You should have strong tastebuds and you should also probably be just a little bit saucy, a little bit spicy of a person to eat this. It’s zingy and fresh and bright and spicy and zippy. All of the things I love in a cool sorbet.
