Granita is one of my favorite recipes to make in the summer. This Italian specialty is extremely easy to make and if you’re a lover of cocktails, like we are here at FoodieandWine.com, then you’ll be pleased to hear you can easily add some liquor to the mix. It’s a perfect dessert for your summer bash.
While this Granita Recipe features Fruit Punch Juice, Mint and Coconut Rum, you can actually use any fruit and/or juice of your choosing. If you select fruit, just throw it in the blender or food processor and add a little lime and/or sugar to taste.
Some Granita Recipe Ideas:
Watermelon and Lime Juice
We’ve made all 3 of the above combos with success.
For our 4th of July celebration, we have a batch of this Fruit Punch, Mint and Rum Granita in our freezer! We’ve made it up to a week in advance with no freezer burn issues.
