Makes 5 cups

Make an adults-only dessert drink that calls for a spoon. Granita comes from the Italian word for "ice," so enjoy this tasty grown-up version of a slushy, made with gold tequila and lime rind.

How to Make It

Step 1

Bring 3 cups water and sugar to a boil in a saucepan, stirring mixture constantly. Pour into a large bowl; add lime juice and next 4 ingredients. Cover and freeze 8 hours.

Step 2

Process frozen mixture in a blender or food processor until slushy.

Step 3

Dip margarita glass rims into water; dip rims in sugar. Spoon granita into glasses.

Step 4

Note: For a nonalcoholic version, omit liquors, and add 1/2 cup fresh orange juice.
