1 bottle champage
1 tablespoon per glass of lemongrass simple syrup
1 scoop per glass of lemongrass sorbet
Candied kumquats for garnish
Mint for garnish
1. In a large bowl combine about 1/2 bottle of champagne, Meyer lemon juice, zest, 1 cup water and simple syrup to taste. Remember this is not an exact science, it should just taste great. Add about 10 whole mint leaves.
2. Place the bowl in the freezer and leave for about 1 hour.
3. Stir the mixture with a fork, breaking up the ice crystals that will have formed on the surface. Stick it back in the freezer for another 30 minutes. Remove from the freezer and break up the large chunks of ice with the fork again. Repeat this ever 30 minutes until the mixture no longer has any liquid.
4. It will be light and fluffy ice crystals that melt in your mouth. Spoon the mixture into glasses and serve immediately with fresh mint leaves. Enjoy!
