Beer Granita With Lime

Beer Granita With Lime


Ice Cream Ice Cream - 3

I thought about this recipe while sipping a cold Mexican beer with lime in while watching my kids, Chloe and Tyler, drink frozen slushies and thought let’s try that with beer. It worked!! So here goes:


• 2 cups of Mexican Beer (corona)

• 2 1/4 cups of water

• 1 1/4 cup of cane sugar

• Zest and juice of 2 limes


• Place all ingredients in a medium pot and bring to simmer on

medium-high heat stirring until sugar is completely dissolved.

• Transfer hot liquid into a large metal bowl or baking dish (the wider

the shallower the faster it will chill). Place into a freezer and leave until

ice begins to form. After an hour or so, take a fork and break up the ice

forming on the top and sides of dish. Repeat every hour until totally


• After a few hours you will have an icy slushy delicious dessert. Give

it a final scrape for a more snow like consistency, or leave as is for a

more chunky texture.

• Serve in chilled bowls
