watermelon-habanaro granita… with tequila!

happy Friday, friends.  I hope y’all have fun plans this weekend. 

Whether you have plans or not, you need to try this.  You will by far be the life of the party if you bring it to a friends’. Or you can be like me and be the life of my own party on my deck. 

My dear friend, Celia over at River Cat Chili in the heart of Austin, Tx, send me ( actually she sent Ryan the habaneros).  She grows all of her own peppers! 

She sent him chocolate habanero.. Check this out! 

  

Let me tell you… These are spiceeeeey! 

And

Oh.

So.

Good.

watermelon-habanero granita. ( plus a bonus 😎)

2 cups seedless watermelon

Juice from 1/2 a lemon

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 thin slice habanero pepper 

Start by blending all ingredients in a blender. 

Pour mixture in freezer-safe dish and cover. 

Place in freezer.  Every 1/2 hour to 45 minutes, use the tines of a fork and scrape the top layer. ( mine took about 3 hours to be perfect) 

  

Serve I a chilled glass with a sprig of mint and or a squeeze of lemon or lime juice 

 You could stop here…. 

OR…  You can do what I’m going to do this weekend… 

  

I’m pouring that baby right over that glass and kicking my feet up! 

Enjoy your weekend!  

Ps… Another exciting giveaway coming up next week!
