Blackberry Sage Margarita Granita Recipe
This blackberry sage margarita granita recipe is the perfect frozen treat for hot days...
Servings: 4 cocktails
- 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
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.
