Ingredients
  • 7 cups honeydew, chopped (1,190 grams)
  • 5 oz vodka
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 oz lime juice
  • 6 sprigs fresh mint
Instructions
  1. Add water and sugar to a small pan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Stir until sugar is dissolved, then remove from heat, add 4 of the mint sprigs, and cover for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, remove the mint sprigs and discard.

  2. Add honeydew, simple syrup, lime juice, and fresh mint leaves from 2 remaining mint sprigs to a high speed blender.  Blend until smooth, then pour into a baking sheet and freeze for 1 hour.

  3. After 1 hour, remove from freezer and scrape using a fork or spoon.  Spread evenly into pan and freeze for another hour.

  4. Scrape the mixture again using a fork or spoon, then scoop into serving glasses. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes
  • For a more granita-like consistency, decrease the amount of vodka to 4 oz and scrape the melon mixture every 30 minutes while freezing.
  • These can be made kid friendly, just skip the vodka.  Be sure you use a touch of honey in its place to help keep the granita from freezing solid.
