Like a grown-up snow cone, granita hits the spot on a hot summer day. Start with a syrupy base that's frozen and scrape until fluffy. Add booze, fruit, herbs, or spices to rev up the flavor.
You don’t have to be wearing a fancy hat at the horse races to enjoy this frosty treat. Infuse a simple sugar syrup with the taste of fresh mint and combine it with bourbon for a slushy Southern-accented dessert.
