I am an amateur cook and an aspiring culinarian. A recent night out had my friends and I trying to design a friendly week-end cookoff of sorts, and I'm afraid a bit of braggartting got me in over my head. The challenge: a desert featuring one of my favourite ingredients -- gin. (NOT my idea) Gin and sweet are not things I consider terribly compatible. I've been thinking something in a lime sorbet, but that's not really sexxy enough to win the challenger's aquiesence. Goodness knows what he's up to. I've considered dressing it up with a pastry of some sort (perhaps something in a scone?), but I'm not so sure that would work. Any advice would be appreciated, anyway.
