  • Put the water and sugar in a saucepan and bring slowly to simmering point, ensure the sugar dissolves evenly.
  • Bubble for 2-3 minutes or until the liquid is slightly syrupy.
  • Add the lemon juice and cool, then mix with the blackberries and optional liqueur.
  • Put it all into a blender and whiz until smooth, then press the puree through a sieve to remove seeds.
  • Taste it for sweetness – you may wish to add little extra sugar or lemon juice.
  • Pour the puree into a freezer-proof container and freeze.
  • After two hours, remove the tub and stir the frozen outside bits into the middle, beating thoroughly.
  • Return to the freezer for another hour and then repeat the stirring.
  • Keep doing this until the mixture is freezing into crystals, which takes around 3 hours.
  • Serve in glasses.
