You'll need

600 gm mango or papaya, cut into bite-sized pieces 450 gm pineapple, cut into bite-sized pieces 200 ml gin 2 tbsp caster sugar Finely grated rind and juice of 1 lime Pulp of 3 passionfruit To serve: lime wedges   Pine-lime sorbet Pulp of 3 passionfruit 500 ml (2 cups) fresh pineapple juice 300 ml sugar syrup (see note) 60 ml (¼ cup) lime juice   Vanilla ice-cream 450 ml pouring cream 375 ml (1½ cups) milk 2 vanilla beans, split and seeds scrape 6 egg yolks 150 gm caster sugar

Method

  • 01
  • Combine mango, pineapple, gin, sugar, and lime rind and juice in a bowl, cover and refrigerate to infuse (overnight).
  • 02
  • For pine-lime sorbet, process passionfruit pulp in a food processor to separate juice from seeds, strain through a fine sieve to yield 50ml juice (discard seeds). Combine in a bowl with remaining ingredients, then freeze in an ice-cream machine until required. Makes about 1 litre.
  • 03
  • For vanilla ice-cream, bring cream, milk and vanilla beans and seeds to the boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Meanwhile, whisk yolks and sugar in a bowl until thick and pale. Pour cream mixture over and whisk to combine. Return mixture to pan and stir continuously over low-medium heat until mixture thickly coats the back of a spoon (5-6 minutes). Strain through a fine sieve into a bowl, refrigerate until chilled, then freeze in an ice-cream machine until required. Makes about 1 litre.
  • 04
  • To serve, spoon infused fruit into chilled serving glasses, top with scoops of pine-lime sorbet and vanilla ice-cream, drizzle with passionfruit pulp and serve immediately with lime wedges.
Note To make sugar syrup, stir equal quantities of caster sugar and water in a saucepan over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves, bring to the boil then cool completely before using. 1 cup caster sugar and 1 cup water will yield 300ml sugar syrup. Sugar syrup will keep refrigerated in a sterile container indefinitely.
