Fresh Blackberry Granita with Lemon Syrup
There's only one way to keep your cool this summer, with boozy frozen treats! Beat the heat by sipping on a refreshing berry granita. Tip: make the lemon syrup while the granita freezes, and refrigerate; strain before serving. Top with extra berries, if desired.
Cherry-Bourbon Ice Cream

A small amount of Chambord, a raspberry liqueur, is just enough to make this already tasty treat completely craveworthy.
