Ingredients

  • vodka 100ml
  • prosecco 300ml

BLOOD ORANGE SORBET

  • caster sugar 100g
  • blood orange juice 500ml, (from 7-8 blood oranges or a carton of pure blood orange juice)

Method

To make the sorbet

  • Step 1

    Put the sugar and 100ml of the juice in a pan. Heat gently until the sugar has dissolved, then simmer for a minute. Cool completely.

  • Step 2

    Pour through a fine sieve into a bowl, then sieve the rest of the juice into the bowl and mix.

  • Step 3

    Pour into an ice-cream maker and churn until frozen. Freeze until needed. If you don’t have an ice-cream machine, pour into a freezable container and put in the freezer. Take out and give it a really good stir every couple of hours until frozen.

To serve

  • Step 1

    Put a scoop of sorbet into 4 glasses. Add a shot of vodka to each and top up with prosecco.
