Margranita – a Grown up Dessert

I’ve seen a lot of Margarita popsicles these days, but I’m a slow eater and they melt on me.  And I love granita!  What is granita?  It’s sort of a snow-cone like ice cream.  It’s super easy to make and tastes delicious!!  So what better way to serve that frozen adult concoction than this….

What you need:

  • ¾ cup fresh lime juice (about 6-7 limes)**
  • ¼ cup fresh Orange juice (1 large orange)
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup sweetened condensed milk
  • ½ cup gold tequila
  • Flaked Sea Salt and lime slices for garnish

** I use a citrus reamer to juice the limes and the oranges.  It gets most of the juice and is pretty easy to use.  Make sure you pick the seeds out though.  If the fruit has a lot of seeds, do it over a strainer.

 

 

 

 

 

How to Do it:

Process all the ingredients (except garnish) in a blender until everything is well incorporated.

Pour into a glass dish, cover and place in the freezer.

After about 2 hours, fluff the ice up with a fork, cover and refreeze.

2-3 hour later, fluff again.

Freeze at least 6 hour more.

Fluff before serving.

To serve – Place scoops in bowls and sprinkle lightly with the salt.  Place a lime slice on top and serve!
