Strawberry Granita

Cook time 4 hours
Servings 4-6


750g fresh strawberries

70g caster sugar

70ml lemon juice

6 tsp. of strawberry liquor (or chamber, kirsch, grappa)

Strawberry Granita


Blitz the strawberries, caster sugar and lemon juice in a food processor or blender until a smooth coulis forms. Strain the mixture through a fine sieve.

Pour into a shallow, rectangular tin (slice tin) and freeze for four hours. After two hours remove from the freezer and scratch the surface with a fork to break up.

Refreeze for a further 2 hours before scratching the surface again to form ice crystals that look like snow.

Serve in latte or martini glasses with a little of the liquor drizzle over the top.
