Pisang Ambon Granita

Servings: 4
This is a recipe for a Pisang Ambon liquer based granita which is a tropical fruit, banana and herb liqueur.

300 ml (1 1/2 cups) water
100 ml (1/2 cup) Pisang Ambon liqueur (tropical fruit, banana and herb liqueur)
15O grams (5 ounces) caster sugar (superfine or granulated sugar may be substituted)
1/2 lime or lemon (only the juice)

1. In a saucepan bring the water and the sugar together to a boil and let it cook softly (simmer) for 5 minutes.

2. Remove from heat and mix the liqueur and the juice of a half lemon (or lime) through it and set it completely in a cold-water-bath.

3. When the mixture is sufficiently cooled down, place it in a puddle sign box (container for freezing) and place in the freezer.

4. Let granita set in freezer for 4 hours. Each half hour remove the granita from the freezer and mix well with a fork, to prevent ice crystals.

5. After 4 hours in the freezer, the granita is ready.

6. Keep the granita in the freezer until ready to serve.

Makes 4 servings.
