  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups sugar

Step 1In a saucepan, combine the water and sugar, cooking over low heat until the sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes.

Poblano sorbet

  • 3 poblano peppers, seeded, deveined and cut into medium pieces
  • 3 cups sorbet syrup
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons tequila blanco
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 3/4 cup water

Step 1Place the peppers in a blender, along with the sorbet syrup, tequila, lime juice and water; depending on the size of the blender, this will probably need to be done in batches. Blend until the chiles are completely puréed. Strain the mixture through a fine mesh strainer, removing and discarding the chile pulp. Freeze the sorbet in an ice cream maker, then cover and store in the freezer until ready to serve.
