Strawberry Margarita Granita

A frozen cocktail for dessert… this is so delicious and a very refreshing end to a meal.  It contains as much alcohol as you’d expect to find in a cocktail, so be careful!
Servings: 6 yield(s)
Prep Time: 200 mins
Ingredients
  • 50 g caster sugar
  • 400 g strawberries
  • 4 limes
  • 100 ml tequila
  • 50 ml orange liqueur (Triple Sec, Cointreau or Grand Marnier)
Instructions
  1. Place the sugar in a pan with 150ml water and heat gently, until the sugar has dissolved. Set aside to cool.
  2. Hull and halve the strawberries and place in a food processor. Add the juice of three limes and blitz until smooth. Pass the strawberry mixture through a fine sieve into the cooled syrup and then stir in the tequila and orange liqueur.
  3. Pour the mixture into a shallow container and freeze for 3 hours. Meanwhile thinly slice the remaining lime, place on cling film and place in the freezer.
  4. Scrape the surface of the granite with a folk to loosen the crystals. Spoon into 4 tumblers or margarita glasses, serve with a slice of frozen lime. Enjoy! I would make double the quantity as your guests will want more.
