Ingredients

  • 3 cups of pomegranate juice about 24 fl ounces or 710ml
  • ¼ to ½ cup simple syrup adjust based your preference or use your favorite sweetener
  • Juice from 2 limes
  • 1 oz or 2 tbs of tequila add more for an adult version or to use in the sparkling pomegranate cocktail or omit completely for a child friendly dessert
  • Fresh pomegranate arils to garnish

Instructions

  • Mix the pomegranate juice, lime juice, simple syrup and tequila.
  • Place the mix intro a freezer friendly container.
  • Put it in freezer for about 1 hour, then remove it and use a fork to mix it up.
  • Put it back in the freezer and repeat an hour later, it will start to get harder so you will need to use the fork to scrape it until it has that crystal granita texture. Repeat one more time.
  • Put it back in the freezer, before using it let it stand at room temperature for about 3-5 minutes and then use a fork to scratch it up before serving.
  • Garnish with fresh pomegranate arils.
