Equipment

  • Blender

Ingredients

  • 4 oz Tequila
  • 4 oz Cointreau
  • 6 oz Blackberries
  • 16 Fresh sage leaves
  • 2 oz Fresh squeezed, strained lime juice
  • 2 oz Simple syrup
  • 1 cup Water
  • 0.125 tsp Kosher salt

Instructions

  • Combine the tequila, Cointreau, blackberries and sage leaves in a blender. Pulse twice, then blend on high speed for 4-6 seconds, just until well blended.
  • Strain the mixture through a fine mesh sieve (stirring speeds up this process considerably!) into a mixing bowl, add the remaining ingredients, and stir. Pour into a flat bottom-ed pan or baking dish (13-by-9-by-2-inch works best) and cover with plastic wrap.
  • Place the pan in the freezer, then stir thoroughly with a fork (make sure you really scrape the sides!) every half hour for about 4 hours, until the consistency is light and fluffy, almost like sorbet.
  • Spoon the granita into serving dishes and serve immediately, or cover and return to the freezer. It's best when eaten within 2 days. If it becomes too hard and dry in the freezer, let it stand at room temperature for 5 minutes and fluff with a fork before serving.
