Preheat oven to 150 degrees F.
In a small pot melt the brown sugar and cook until sugar caramelizes and set aside.
To make the lime sorbet, combine the water and sugar in a pot and cook until all of the sugar is melted. Cool the syrup and add the lime juice and zest. In a separate bowl whisk the egg whites until light and frothy. Combine the lime syrup and egg whites and freeze in and ice cream machine. Once the sorbet comes out of the machine, fill 4-inch rings half way with the sorbet and place in the freezer.
