Tasty Thursdays: Honeydew Granita Spritzer

Thursday, August 19, 2010

For this recipe of this refreshing Honeydew Granita Spritzer, I've taken from Martha Stewart.

To serve for 6 people, you'll need:
  • 6 cups cubed honeydew melon (about half of a medium melon)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 3 cups seltzer
  • Lime peels, for garnishing
To make:
  1. Working in batches, puree 6 cups cubed honeydew melon in a blender. Pour puree through a fine sieve into an 8-inch square nonreactive dish.
  2. Put 1/2 cup water and sugar into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring until sugar has dissolved. Stir into puree. Add fresh lime juice; stir to combine. Freeze, covered, at least 6 hours (up to 3 days).
  3. Scrape granita with a fork; spoon about 1 cup granita into each of 6 glasses. Pour 1/2 cup seltzer into each glass; garnish with lime peels.
This is my last Tasty Thursdays before my college classes start once again! Starting next week, I'll start branching out towards desserts instead of more summer drinks :)
