Tried this for the first time today after receiving a bottle of gin as a gift. Wow! Just amazing it is so delicious i had to stop myself finishing the lot! Agree with the other reviewers about adding the sorbet it does fizz up a bit so make sure you use a big jug. My favourite cocktail so far!

This tastes divine. But agree with tcunnane - it froths up a LOT when you add the sorbet so make sure you use a really big jug because you won't want to waste a drop.

Be very careful when you add the sorbet. It froths up a lot and we lost a lot first time we made it. Won't make that mistake again! Use a huge jug or add sorbet very slowly.
