Sorrel-Lime Cooler - May 9, 2013
I made this delightful concoction from a recipe included in the newsletter from our CSA farm. It's interesting ingredient list caught my attention. A soda made from sorrel leaves? I'm in.
The recipe instructs to blend together sorrel leaves, lime juice, water and maple syrup in a blender and puree until smooth. I opted not to strain it, but you could if you wanted. To make up your cooler, simply add a bit of sorrel-lime juice to a glass and top with soda water.
This was really fresh and bright. I enjoyed mine straight-up, but it would also be lovely as a mixer for a summery cocktail (have you figured out my coping mechanism over these last few frozen weeks here in Minneapolis?). Gin would be my first choice, but it would be fun to try other combinations as well.
