One of the greatest luxuries of always having homemade sorbet handy, is that you can make a magnificent cocktail, like this Artemis Sparkle Cocktail, in a breeze. And this, without adding any syrup. Making cocktails out of fruity sorbets is no rocket science, you just blend some sorbet with your favourite drink and then adjust to your liking.

For this cocktail we chose to mix Apricot Sorbet with Dry Gin, added a splash of Soda Water, a dash of cinnamon and some squeezed blackberry drops. Then topped the glass with a fresh blackberry and a cinnamon stick.  The cinnamon balanced the sweetness of the Apricot Sorbet and the blackberry added a small touch of sourness. Refreshing, fruity and so apricot-y.

Note that this cocktail and its name is a personal creation. I am no bartender and have no clue about mixology, so I do not know if there are any rules in name-giving or if there exists something similar. If there is something I should be aware of, please do leave a note in the comments, I will take it seriously.
