Watermelon always reminds me of summer. My mother never liked it – which I always found weird – but she made sure it was always there in the fridge in summer. Watermelon is a classic granita flavour in Italy, and the watermelon/mint/ice combination here is very refreshing and perfect on its own, though if you want to get more adult, try forking some vodka or prosecco through it before serving. It’s important to pay attention while making granita to make sure you get the right slushy consistency. And eat it straight away – if you leave it in the freezer it’ll go rock hard.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
500g seedless watermelon, cut into small chunks
300g filtered water
10 large mint leaves
200g caster sugar

Method

  1. Add the watermelon, water, mint and sugar to a bowl and blend with a hand-held blender until completely smooth.
  2. Pour the mixture into a pre-cooled stainless steel tray and put into the freezer. Every 30 minutes, remove and break up the ice crystals with a fork. Do this until icy and easy to scoop (this should take about 2 hours). Serve.
