Add alcohol? Can we make margarita sorbet?


The recipe for margarita tequila sorbet is fun and can add a twist to your establishment. When you are making ice cream under normal circumstances you must consider milk fat and sugar as those are the two ingredients that will change consistency the most. Alcohol when added to the mix also affects the consistency by changing the freezing point. We have calculated this margarita recipe to work perfectly in Electro Freeze batch freezers, however when experimenting keep in mind slight changes in alcohol, sugar, and fat will greatly change the final consistency.

The machine used in today's video is the Electro Freeze B12V Batch Freezer. 

This large-capacity batch freezer produces the highest quality ice cream, gelato, sorbet, Italian ice, or sherbets. Mechanically simple and exceptionally dependable, this machine is perfect for gelato, custard, and water ice shops.
