Orsino’s Ginger Mint Sorbet
"What’s the point of magic, if not to entertain the privileged with ostentatious display?" Orsino asked with some bitterness and considerable resignation. He knows that as an advocate for his charges, he is ineffectual and impotent, but he believes that the little he can do is better than nothing at all. Orsino is not a happy man.
This recipe represents a moment of private indulgence in a life that allows very little. The judicious application of Winter’s Grasp produces ice in summer, and the possibility of frozen desserts. The effect is somewhat diminished (and the results, less appreciated) in winter, but at least no one could accuse him of blood magic over it. We have other means of chilling things, but the recipe works one way or another. It is possible to make this without an ice cream maker, but the sorbet will be grainier. Instructions are given for both methods. The recipe calls for egg white, which creates smaller ice crystals and a more pleasant mouth feel. Use pasteurized eggs or pasteurized egg whites from a carton for this. Thedas has magic to cure salmonella, but we don’t.
- 2 cups water, divided
- 1 cup sugar
- 6 limes
- 1 Tbsp dried mint
- 1 inch fresh ginger root, minced
- 2 Tbsp pasteurized egg white
Bring 1 cup of water and the sugar to a boil over high heat. Allow to boil for about 2 minutes, then remove from the stove.
Grate the zest from 1 lime and add it to the hot syrup with the mint and the ginger root. Allow to steep until it reaches room temperature. Juice all 6 limes into the cold syrup, not worrying about any pits, and add the water. Strain out the solids and stir in the egg white.
If you are making this using an ice cream maker, carry on, following the manufacturer’s instructions regarding the ice/salt ratio. If you are making this by hand, pour the mixture into a wide, shallow container and place in the freezer. Every two or three hours, remove the sorbet from the freezer and beat with a mixer to break up the ice crystals. You may wind up with a luxurious, smooth sorbet, but the worst-case scenario is a ginger-mint granita, and that’s still delicious.
Serve with crisp, buttery cookies and a healthy dose of irony.

Also, they should seriously come up with a TV Trope title for Calling-You-By-Your-Actual-Name-When-You’re-in-Mortal-Peril.
