We consider the granita an adult version of a slushie. Full of fresh raspberries, lemon juice and 3 tablespoons of Italian limoncello, this recipe is certainly a grown-ups’ delight. Though easily omitted for the under 21 crowd limoncello adds a slight sweet bite.  It is reminiscent of the original lemon granitas found all over Sicily which have been served as an Italian street food for years. An added plus: they can be made in advance and stored for up to 2 weeks in the freezer. So, if you’re craving something sweet, start your own happy hour with this tasty ice pop. Bon Appetito!
