Zero Proof: Blueberry Lavender Lemonade

Serious Eats Christianne Winthrop Post a comment

If you could cram everything about summer into a glass, it would be this blueberry lavender lemonade. It's sweet, floral, and refreshing. Doctor it up with vodka or tequila, or drink it straight and cold from the refrigerator, barely pausing to pour it from the pitcher. You could try raspberries or strawberries, but for the tastiest, prettiest punch, your best bet is a blueberry. More

Go slowly with the salt and lime juice, adding just a bit at a time. You may need more or less depending on your cherries, though keep in mind that flavor intensity dials down when frozen. If you want your sorbet to taste like a 10, flavor the base up to 11. If you can't find sour cherries, you can use their sweet counterparts; just up the acidity to keep things tart and refreshing.

Scooped: Lavender-Hyssop Ice Cream

Serious Eats Max Falkowitz 1 comment

Lavender is a surprisingly versatile dessert ingredient with a strong affinity to cream. It's a love-it-or-hate-it kind of herb, but the creaminess subdues its at-times overwhelming intensity. Hyssop has largely fallen out of Western culinary use, which is a shame given its long history dating back to ancient times. Fortunately it's increasingly common in gardens and at farmers' markets.
