Cucumber Lemon Granita

June 16, 2017

 

Granita is a fancy semi-frozen dessert. It’s very unique  

 

Ingredients

½ cup squeeze fresh lemon juice

3 large cucumbers peeled (cut in half)

1 cup water

3 sprigs peppermint

 ½ cup sugar

2 oz. vodka (optative)

Fresh cherries for garnish

 

Preparation

Blend together cucumber, lemon juice, sugar, water and peppermint.

Strain the liquid. Add vodka and mix well. Pour the mixture into a glass casserole dish such a Pyrex. Place the dish into the freezer to chill. After 45 minutes scrape the mixture with a fork to break up the crystals.  Place the dish in the freezer again. Repeat at least 3 times every 45 minutes.

Serve in a fancy glass and garnish with cherries.

Tip. You can replace cucumber for green apples.
