Watermelon and vodka granita
- July 2015
- Serves 8
- Hands-on time 20 min, plus freezing
An adults-only treat to serve at your next soirée, our boozy watermelon granita – made with lime, ginger and mint – is great served as dessert or in-between courses.
Or, for something a little different, try our melon and gin granita recipe.
- 0.6g (0.2g saturated)
- 32g (31.7g sugars)
- trace salt
Taste the melon and if it’s not super-sweet, dissolve 1 tbsp sugar in 1 tbsp boiling water, then add it with the vodka in step 1.
To prepare watermelon, slice off the ends. Rest it on a flat end, then slice off the skin in strips, turning the melon as you go. Cut vertically into slices, break them along the seed lines, then remove the seeds.
Make the granita up to 2 days in advance. Take it out of the freezer a few minutes before serving to soften it slightly.
