Two granita recipes from Dalla Rose: Orange Campari and lime

Recette granitas Dalla Rose

In the mood for freshness? Dalla Rose shared two delicious granita recipes with us; Campari orange and lime.

These recipes are really simple but do need a little love and attention. Remember to stir them until all the ice crystals have formed! If not, you will get a huge flavoured ice cube.

Granitas

Ingredients

Simple syrup
  • 110 g (1/2 cup) + 1/2 tablespoon sugar
  • 110 ml (1/2 cup) + 1/2 tablespoon of water
Orange Campari Granita
  • 220 ml (1 cup) + 1 tablespoon simple syrup
  • 400 g (1 2/3 cup) Campari
  • 200 g (1 cup) orange juice
Lemon Granita
  • 400 g (2 cups) simple syrup
  • 200 ml (1 cup) lime juice

Method

Simple syrup
  1. Mix water and sugar in a small saucepan.
  2. Bring to a boil.
  3. Transfer to a bowl and let cool to room temperature. Can be made 3-4 days in advance.
  4. When making the granita, make sure everything is at room temperature before you start. This will allow the simple syrup to incorporate properly with the other ingredients.
Granita
  1. Mix everything together in a bowl, transfer to a freezer-safe container and place in the freezer. Using a metal pan will speed up the process if you’re in a hurry, but use one you don’t like as much because you may scratch it in the next step.
  2. After about 45 minutes, the mixture should start to set. With a fork, stir or scrape the mixture to make ice crystals.
  3. Return to the freezer and repeat every 30 minutes until the mixture is completely transformed into ice crystals.
  4. Once the mixture is finished, store it in a tightly closed container until ready to serve.
