Orange Coconut Kinky Vodka Granita

Orange Coconut Kinky Vodka Granita

There was a time in my life when I liked to party, and maybe drink a little too much, I’d say my early 20’s. Ohhhh, the stories I could tell. Now that I am in my late 30’s, I have found my alcohol shut off switch, which I think comes along with getting older and being more responsible.

In my old age, I have begun to appreciate alcohol in a more respectful way. So I drink in moderation every so often. When KINKY® Liqueur approached me about developing a recipe for them I was a bit leery because I have not the slightest idea about drink mixing, but I do know food. I wanted to develop a fun “non-drink” recipe.

First it was going to be a cupcake, but then I decided on a super tropical Granita.

A granita is a little icy treat that is perfect for a hot summer day by the pool. I know most of you are still suffering from the Polar Vortex, so just pin or print this recipe for when it warms up for you. To make a granita, you basically mix your liquids, put them in a shallow pan and pop it in the freezer. Every 30 minutes, you scrape and stir the mixture so that it never forms into a big block of ice. So you certainly want to make this recipe when you are going to be home for several hours.

I made this batch of Orange Coconut Granita one day and took photos of it 3 days later and it was still perfectly slushy and delightful.

    haha i’m the same way… partied way too much in my early 20′s now I’m much wiser. This sounds good–can’t wait to try it once this baby gets his eviction notice :)
