Eat anything, but if it bites back, boil it.

A while ago I made a lemon granita (shaved ice dessert) for a little dinner party. With the leftovers, my gal suggested I add alcohol to it. I came up with a little citrus mint martini.

1 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
3 lemons
3 more cups water

Put the sugar and 1 cup water into a pan and heat until dissolved. Zest all the lemons and juice all of them and add to a baking pan that can hold all the water. Pour the sugarwater mixture and the rest of the water into the pan with the lemon flavor. Freeze stirring and scraping every 30 mins to get nice small shards.

Mint simple syrup
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
5 mint leaves
Put it all in a pan together. Heat until sugar dissolves. Put into a container and cool (removing mint leaves is optional)

For the martini:
Put as much granita in a glass as you'd like. Add about 1 tablespoon of mint syrup. Fill glass up with rum. Too much alcohol? Add more syrup.

Ideally, take a shaker full of ice and 2oz. of rum, shake, then pour over granita.

Garnish with a lemon twist (I didn't have any) or a mint sprig.
