Lemon-Lime Granité

This is a great little refresher to put in between two dishes if you’re going posh with your dinner plans 🙂

4 dl water
1 dl sugar
1 dl lemon+lime juice (fresly squeezed)
The peel of 1 organic lemon
1 handful of chopped mint leaves
1 tsb beet root juice (it’s only for the colour, so it’s optional)

– Boil water and sugar until the sugar is fully melted

– Take the sugar water of the heat and mix in all the other ingredients

– Leave it to cool off and put it in the freezer

– Stir it once an hour for the first two hours

– Then stir it every half hour for about two more hours until it has a nice fluffy consistency (alternatively you can freeze the whole thing and scrabe the ice crystals of with a fork into a glass)

Serve in a cocktail glass, and top with lemon peel and mint… Posh! 😉
