Melon Granita
Show Me
Freeze the mixture in one or two shallow pans.
Scrape the surface ice to break it up as soon as it forms. (Do it often!)

Melon Granita

Serves 6

This is a really refreshing intermezzo or palate cleanser to be served between courses. By scraping the ice, rather than preparing a classic sorbet or sherbert, you get a texture that's crunchy but melts almost immediately you taste it. In the summer it makes a great dessert all by itself.

Ingredients
  • 4-1/2 cups of honeydew melon or watermelon juice
  • 1/4 cup of sugar (or to taste)
  • Lemon juice, to taste
  • 1/4 cup of Midori liqueur
Method
  1. Add sugar and lemon to melon or watermelon juice to correct flavor. Add Midori liqueur.
  2. Pour mixture into one or two shallow baking pans to a depth of approximately 1/4-inch. Place in freezer. (If you pour any deeper, ice crystals will not form properly.)
  3. When you see a layer of ice on the surface, scrape to break it up and put pan back in freezer. Continue this process until completely frozen. Final product should look like sequins.
Presentation

Place a scoop of granita into a solid wine glass or a classic martini glass and serve immediately.
