This sharp, fruity granita is a lovely way to finish a meal.

Ingredients

Caster Sugar

125 g

Lemon(s)

2 zest(s) of 1

Lemon Juice, Fresh

100 ml

Caster Sugar

1 teaspoons

Bottle Green Sparkling Ginger & Lemongrass

60 ml

Instructions

  1. Put the caster sugar into a saucepan with 500ml water. Slowly bring to the boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Boil steadily (not too fiercely) for 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and leave to cool.
  2. Mix in the lemon zest, lemon juice and lemongrass cordial.
  3. Pour into a freezer box and freeze for 1 hour until ice crystals start to form. Stir with a fork to break up the crystals, then return to the freezer. Repeat every 45 minutes or so, until the granita is frozen.
  4. Slice the pared lemon zest into very fine strips. Put them into a small saucepan with the caster sugar and 2 teaspoons of water. Heat until the sugar dissolves and the water evaporates, to leave sticky shreds of lemon zest.
  5. Spoon the granita into chilled glasses and serve, decorated with the lemon zest.
