Savor Your Summer: Naked Nun + Orange Sorbet

By August 3, 2018Blog
Naked Nun

Is there anything better than a scoop of homemade ice cream or sorbet on a summer’s day? What about a scoop of homemade, Adelbert’s Naked Nun infused sorbet? We love this recipe for its simplicity — both in its preparation (Only three ingredients! No ice cream maker needed!) and flavors. This is a refreshing treat for the end of a long summer day spent with good friends and good drinks.

About the Brew

 Naked Nun is the quintessential summer wit. It is refreshing and soft, with balanced hints of bitter orange peel and aromatic coriander, citrus, apple
and clove. It finishes dry and clean making it perfect to pair with lighter summer fare like baked salmon or grilled chicken. It is also a seven time award winning beer, so no matter what you pair it with or if you just enjoy it on it’s own, you know you’ll have a great drink.

Naked Nun + Orange Sorbet

This bright, refreshing beer already has citrusy notes so it only makes sense to not just pair it with orange sorbet, but use it in the base to give this dish a more complex flavor profile. This adult-take on orange sorbet gives it layers of flavor without compromising the integrity of the dish.
