Other types of Citrus Sorbets

You can also replace the lime juice with lemon, orange, grapefruit juice.  If using oranges or grapefruit juice the 1 cup of juice should be 2/3 their juice and 1/3 lemon juice, otherwise, it will be too sweet.
Instead of Vodka, you can also use Grand Marnier, Cognac or Calvados.
