1. Make sorbet or frozen cocktails.
Turns out you don't actually need an ice cream maker to make frozen desserts, as this easy trick shows. Start with lemonade, either plain, flavored with a squirt of other citrus, such as lime, or infused with a few sprigs of lavender or rosemary. Pour it into trays, freeze and whiz in a blender until smooth. Serve in bowls and enjoy with spoons; or, pour into glasses, top each with a shot of vodka or gin and sip as a two-in-one cocktail-dessert.
