Get Real
Booze-Spiked Sorbet from a Cart

UD - Real SorbetConsider sorbet.

It’s a welcome palate-cleanser. A light dessert. An excuse to use a silent t.

Yet it’s always seemed a bit, well, dainty. But that’s nothing a splash of Caribbean rum and Texan vodka couldn’t fix...

Behold the future of frozen cocktailing and summer cooldowns: the Real Sorbet cart has launched, offering boozy scoops of fruity refreshment on a street corner near you.

Now, we know we recently extolled the virtues of boozy popsicles. So consider this a spiked-dessert domino effect (your favorite kind of domino effect).

So the cart. It’s like an old-school ices vendor teamed up with a hip, farm-to-table chef to vend flavors like Peach Iced Tea, made with fruit from a farm in western Florida, and Orange Espresso, made with fair trade organic coffee.

And regarding the good stuff: they churn small, made-to-order batches of party sorbets like Tequila Sunrise, a blackberry-flecked Kir Royal and a Lycheetini.

But if you happen to catch them while battling a hot sidewalk in the Design District or downtown (follow them here), make sure to try the Watermelon (ginger, lime and vodka) or the Grapefruit Mint, made with a splash of Barbadian silver rum. They also have a weekly secret sorbet that will only be offered when asked for specifically.

Hint: this week it’s Mimosa.
