Hi all...I am having a gathering on the 4th of july. Want to make watermelon granita. I have a basic recipe, however would like to add alcohol, any tips on the type of alcohol, and just in general your suggestions appreciated. Thanks!

It would have to be vodka i reckon. i've heard of folk actually injecting copious amounts into the watermelon then i think its chilled and after that i dont know how its eaten...or drunk...I'll try googling it.
Welcome to the forum btw sidediva
I often put a small amount of vodka into fruit ice creams that I don't want to freeze rock hard or to form ice crystals. I'm talking a tablespoon or two to a quart and a half of ice cream. I would think adding enough vodka or tequila to notice to a granita would affect how quickly and how well it freezes. You might end up with slush rather than granita. It will be a sacrifice, I know, but you should probably experiment before you attempt to serve it.
