one of the best ways to cool down from the hot summer sunshine takes a little advance planning. when making iced tea the next time, use an ice-cube tray and make frozen iced tea cubes.
when the cubes are frozen, crush them in a blender and serve yourself a frozen iced tea granita. with most granitas, the slushy iced mixture has to be stirred until the right consistency every hour or so for the right texture. with this technique, i think the granita is just perfect.
i think this beverage could be adapted to iced lemonade or even iced coffee granita.
my cuisinart blender worked perfectly and crushed about 8 cubes to make this drink. better than typical iced tea and fun to eat with a spoon.
summer sunshine will be welcome when frosty granitas are available.
