What better way to beat the heat than with a serving of homemade granita? This icy Italian treat is incredibly refreshing, and is made from a combination of fruit juice and sugar. There are so many options when it comes to making granita at home, and since watermelons are everywhere nowadays, I couldn’t resist making it my star ingredient.
If you haven’t had it before, granita tastes like the most delicate, flavorful snow cone you’ve ever had. It’s the perfect refreshing treat to make for the little ones who are looking to cool down on a hot summer day. But if you’re interested, an adult version of this dessert can also be made with the addition of rum, vodka, or in this case, some rosė. Feel free to play around with different types of juices in order to make a granita that suits your taste. And remember, summer is almost over, so now’s the time to make a batch of your own.
