Boozy Dragon Fruit Sorbet

in #ocd-resteemlast year


Have you ever tried Palinka? It's a schnapps from Hungary and it is very strong, which most of the time I do not like it at all unless it is mixed with tons of water and ice :P Totally toning down the strongness :P

I think the only Palinka I liked is the peach honey Palinka, as it is a bit sweet compares to the regular Palinka.

How about dragon fruit? Have you tried them? I think it is rather tasteless, no? A tad sweet but nothing distinct in flavor, unlike other fruits.

One day though, an idea came to mind, and I made frozen dessert out of Palinka and dragon fruit. Yes, I turned them into sorbet :D

  • 1 dragon fruit
  • 4 tbsp Palinka or you can use peach schnapps
  • Juice of a lemon
  • 150 ml simple syrup (Bring to a boil 1 c each sugar and water, stirring continuously, until sugar dissolve. Cool to room tempt.)


  • Halve a dragon fruit and scoop out the flesh
  • Do not throw away the skin but instead, wash, pat dry, then bag them in a ziplock bag
  • Place the bag into freezer

  • Into a blender, pour in palinka/schnapps, along with dragon fruit flesh, lemon juice and simple syrup
  • Process until smooth, then pour mixture into a tupperware and freeze for at least 3 hours

  • Take out sorbet from the freezer, mix in the blender again for at least 2 minutes, then back to the freezer for another 3 hours. Repeat this step twice more and your sorbet is ready :)
  • Take out the chilled skin and fill it with sorbet, serve immediately :D

The use of the chilled skin is of course optional :) It's just fun :D

Once I am back fully, I will resume my daily theme, so that it would be easier for you to find them :D Thank you!
