Granitas are a perfect dessert for the summertime, especially if you live in a hot and humid area like Florida. Smitten Kitchen, a website everyone should know about, recently posted a fantastic entry on lemon mint granitas. This is a simple dessert to make and most of the ingredients already exist in your kitchen! In addition, this can be made ahead of time which is perfect for a dinner party.
I love granitas and they are always a hit with guests. But they are not simply reserved for dessert; try a cucumber mint granita served as a palate cleanser; a ginger granita to give you an energy boost; or take the lemon mint granita up a notch by adding Limoncello or making a hibiscus mint granita with rum! There are endless possibilities to this recipe so have fun incorporating it into your event.
