Cherry Lime Granita

by | Feb 25, 2015 | Desserts, Drinks

Granita is an Italian drink originated in Sicily made from sugar , water and various flavorings. A sip of this in summers soothes and relaxes your senses. Here I have used a blend of cherries , lime, lemon and mint. The sweetness of cherries and lime combined with the tanginess of lemon and freshness of the mint makes this drink a must try in the hot and humid summers. Presenting Cherry Lime Granita.
