Lemon Sorbet with Candied Orange Peel {Skagway, Alaska}

This Lemon Sorbet with Candied Orange Peel is fun and beautiful, and loaded with bright citrus flavors.

Lemon Sorbet with Candied Orange Peel from afarmgirlsdabbles.com

I just love it when a seemingly ordinary dish, with a little added attention to detail, becomes extraordinary. Take, for instance, this Lemon Sorbet with Candied Orange Peel. I’ve enjoyed both lemon sorbet and candied orange peel in the past, but never together in the same dish. And never with a splash of alcohol (optional), like we enjoyed on the Ruby Princess during our cruise to Alaska. With just a bit of extra flair, all these flavors joined together for one wonderful and tasty experience.

Be sure to read to the end of the post, after the recipe, for more on our cruise to Alaska. I am sharing about our excursion in Skagway, aboard the White Pass and Yukon Route Railroad, plus a few extra special onboard events we took in while sailing with Princess Cruises.
