Energy Drink Sorbet
  • 250 ml Red Bull or equivalent Energy drink
  • 250 ml water
  • 5 tablespoons Agave nectar (or other inverted sugar, i e corn syrup or honey)
  • 5 tablespoons (50 ml) sugar
  • 1 egg white
  1. Combine the water and the sugar(s) to a simple sugar syrup (either by heating the mixture for a few minutes until all the sugar has dissolved or by shaking them until this has happened). If heated, allow the sugar syrup to cool down, preferably in the fridge.
  2. Once the sugar syrup has cooled down, combine it with the energy drink and blend.
  3. Churn in an ice cream machine according to instructions, adding a slightly whipped egg white to the sorbet base towards the end of the churning. If still-freezing without an ice cream machine, put the sorbet base in a freezer safe-container, put it in a freezer and churn the base by hand (using a fork or equivalent) every 45 minutes or so for at least three hours (if so, add the slightly whipped egg white only when the sorbet base has begun to stabilise somewhat).
  4. Cover the sorbet with plastic film, put on the lid to the freezer-safe container and leave to froze. Allow the sorbet some time to defrost a bit before serving.
As with many sorbets, particularly those composed almost entirely by liquids, this one is best enjoyed while fresh.
