The Elengant Granita

My last post described how to make ice cream. Today I provide a simpler and lactose free (!!!) alternative. The simple yet elegant Granita.Even the name brings thoughts of dinner parties and five star restaurants. And it’s super delicious! Here is my favorite recipe:

24 oz raspberry- apple sauce
24 oz water divided
6 oz sugar
6 oz flavored tequila (mango and lime complement the flavor excellent)

1. Combine tequila and apple sauce
2. Combine 8 oz h2o and sugar in a small saucepan; bring to boil; stirring until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat add remaining h2o.
3. Combine raspberry mix and sugar mix, stirring. The dish must be 13 x 9 inch. Freeze 6 hours or until firm. Stir 2 times in the first 2 hours.
