Spiked Peach Limeade Granita | From My Sweet Heart

This icy treat has a fire all it’s own!  Chilly to my tongue, but definitely warms my heart!  It is  hard to believe that something so ridiculously easy can taste so amazingly good!  Refreshing?  Yes!  A great combination of flavors, but the rum most definitely shines through!

Check out how crazy easy this is!

  • 4 cups of water
  • 3 large peaches, peeled and sliced
  • 1 1/3 cups of granulated sugar
  • 6 mint leaves
  • 1 1/3 cups of fresh lime juice (about 9 limes)
  • 3/4 cup of rum
  • peach slices and mint sprigs for garnish

Combine water, peaches, sugar and mint leaves in a medium saucepan.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce the heat and let simmer for about 5 minutes.  Cool and discard the mint.

Place half of the peach mix in a blender.  Puree until smooth.  Pour pureed peach mixture into a 13 x 9 inch glass baking dish.  Combine the remaining peach mixture, lime juice and rum in the blender.  Puree until smooth.  Add to the baking dish.  Stir to combine.

Freeze 8 hours or until firm.  Remove from the freezer, scrape with a fork until fluffy.  Spoon into serving dishes or glasses and garnish with peaches and mint.  Serve immediately.  Makes approximately 8 servings.  Unless you are like me and LOVE it so much….then it serves only one!

    A gal after my own heart! We’ve turned off the air to conserve energy and it’s very warm in here. Tonight this would be a one serving recipe. It’s almost to pretty to eat, notice I said almost.

    So easy and so, so pretty!! After a recent string of kitchen disasters I’m giving up cooking for a few days and focusing instead on mixology- this granita is on my list for sure!!

      Jill….it’s so easy….I can’t imagine I won’t keep a batch of some sort in the freezer. You mix up a bunch of stuff…freeze it for a day…..and scrape it with a fork! And each time before you’re ready to have more….just re-scrape it with a fork! The possibility for flavors are endless! : )

    Delicious! I bet it would work great with Malibu Coconut rum too — you know to give it that “tropical” taste and make u feel like u’ve traveled south of the hemisphere.
