Fruit Punch Granita with Rum

Granita

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.
