Summer is juicy watermelons and this easy semi-frozen treat is the perfect way of enjoying them!

I originally shared this watermelon granita with lime recipe two summers ago, and every summer since, I've spent a few days scraping semi-frozen watermelon to make this delicious treat. Keeping up with the spirit of revamping old favourite recipes, I've added in a tiny, adults-only twist: booze!

Personally, I think gin would be amazing with this granita, but you could use any clear liquor you fancied, you could probably even get away with a light rum. Or, of course, if you're teetotal or will be making this dish to share with kids, skip over the booze! Swap it for sparkling water for a fizzy twist or limeade to play up the sweet and sour mix

One final thought: taste your watermelon beforehand. If it's super sweet, you can skip the sugar all together, making this gluten free and vegan treat even better for you!
