Spiked Sweet Cherry Granita Recipe πŸ’πŸ§

Ingredients


4 cups frozen sweet cherries (not thawed)
1 cup water
2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar (or superfine)
2 tablespoons spiced rum
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Directions

  1. PurΓ©e all ingredients together in a blender until smooth. Strain mix through a fine sieve and discard the solid remains.*

  2. Next, pour your granita mixture into a shallow container (like a glass baker or baking pan), cover with an airtight lid (or plastic wrap) and place on a level surface in your freezer. Allow mixture to freeze for a minimum of twelve hours.

  3. Here comes the fun part! Once ready to serve, use a fork and scrape away at the frozen surface until you have a nice, slushy mix. Serve in a chilled glass or dish.

*This is optional!

See? Wasn't that simple? Now you're ready to enjoy the "fruits of your labor"... haha!
