Coffee GranitaIf you don’t have an espresso maker, use instant espresso powder to make the coffee for this sophisticated Coffee Granita Recipe. Use 7 teaspoons of powder for 2 1/2 cups of water. Makes a little less than 4 cups of shaved ice


2 1/2 cups brewed espresso
1/4 cup coffee-flavored liqueur, such as Kahlúa
2/3 cup sugar, preferably superfine sugar
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest, finely chopped


1. Whisk all the ingredients in a large bowl until the sugar dissolves, pour into a 9 X 13-inch baking pan; place it on the floor of the freezer. Freeze for about 2 hours, scraping and stirring with a fork every 20 minutes or so to break apart the ice crystals and distribute them throughout the mixture. When the granita is frozen but still soft, smooth out the crystals and cover the pan with plastic wrap. The granita can be stored, tightly covered, in the freezer for up to 3 weeks.

2. Serve by scraping up the ice crystals from the granita’s surface with a fork; scoop them into individual-serving bowls, plates, or cups.
