I just had this drink about 3 wks ago at a wedding, here in Portugal, it is often served in between the meals, as here you always have 2 main dishes one fish the other meat. The drink in served after your first dish, this is to help the digestion. It is quite good, you may find it a little bitter at first but you easy adapt yourself to it.

I forgot I was going to make this for dessert for tonight’s Easter Supper until it was too later to get it to the ‘frozen sorbet’ stage. As others have noted, it didn’t matter, I served it in some old 60’s giant champagne glasses and it was a hit! Definitely a keeper and can’t wait to make it again.

Loved, Loved, Loved this. I am a big lemon fan anyways, but this was outstanding. I will be making this again tonight!!! I halved the recipe as I could only find pints of lemon sorbet. I will see if they have lime too. I had it both as a drink and as a dessert. I wouldn't complain about getting this either way!! Thanks Annacia for a new summer treat!!
