Ingredients

  • 100ml water
  • 200g caster or granulated sugar
  • 150ml good-quality gin (we like Bombay Sapphire or Beefeater)
  • 500ml good-quality tonic water (without saccharin)
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • Edible flower petals (from firstleaf.co.uk or nicholsonsherbfarm.com, optional) to serve

Method

  1. Heat the water with the sugar for about 5 minutes until dissolved. Add the remaining ingredients and pour into a freezer-proof container. Cool to room temperature, then freeze. After 1 hour, remove and whisk with a fork (or whizz in a food processor) to break up the ice crystals, then return to the freezer.
  2. Repeat after another hour. Before serving, break up the granita with a fork to give it a softer texture. Serve topped with edible flower petals, such as violas, if you like.
