I don’t know if it’s hot where you are, but it’s HOT here! It seems that in the last few weeks a heat wave has been moving across the country. July is always rough for those of us in the South. I’ll (hopefully) be escaping the heat in a few short weeks for some cooler temps. In the meantime, this watermelon, lime, berry granita is sure to keep us (and YOU) cool and refreshed!
First, make a simple syrup by boiling 1/4C water. Add 1/2C sugar to the boiling water and stir until sugar is dissolved. Take off heat and let cool about 30 minutes.
Once simple syrup is cool, add it to a blender along with 2C watermelon, 1tbs. lime juice, 3/4C mixed berries, and 2C ice. Blend until ice is crushed, but not liquefied.
Enjoy this as a fabulous afternoon refresher!
