Melon Granita

4 1/2 cup s
honeydew melon or watermelon juice
1/4 cup
sugar (or to taste)
Lemon juice, to taste
1/4 cup
Midori liqueur
  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.

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

About this Recipe

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.
