Watermelon Margarita Granitas

I’ve been drooling over the idea of making granitas for a long time now but looking at them I always thought, that probably will take forever to make so I’m not doing it. 



UM. WHAT WAS I THINKING.

This is the easiest thing I’ve ever done.

Not to mention I did it at 9am which in turn means taste testing of margaritas is required in the morning. HELLO BEST JOB EVER.

Watermelon Margarita Granitas

Let’s talk about a real serious lesson I learned while making these Watermelon Margarita Granitas. Place your rimmed cookie sheet INSIDE of the freezer before you pour the liquid in. If you saw me it was like an intense core stabilization workout that I was almost losing the entire time I was trying to transport it into the freezer. Like I didn’t even BREATHE. 

But oh trust me it got there because this IS A MARGARITA PEOPLE! I’ll never do it that way again. 

My grandpa always told me that if you don’t look at something while you’re walking, you never spill. Which really just means you didn’t know you spilled because you were looking away. Which sometimes I do that like today I was making skewers and soaked my skewer sticks in water on a cookie sheet and when it was time to dump the water across the room in the sink I tried his theory and what happened? Water. Everywhere.

So make sure you put yours in the freezer, learn from me because: LIQUID G.O.L.D.

Watermelon Margarita Granitas

These Watermelon Margarita Granitas take about 3 hours from start to finish unless you spread them on two cookie sheets it could take less time. Make sure to scrape mixture with a fork every 30 minutes until frozen through! It makes a ton so hop on the couch, get your favorite netflix binge watching on and dive face first into these addicting and oh so delicious Watermelon Margarita Granitas!

Happy National Watermelon Day!

    Hello Amy I so hope you are well and beautiful now! Your story is so similar to my Daughters, who was a Hairdresser! I Googled first because I saw a ‘Strawberry and Rhubarb Fencehopper’ drink in a book and had no idea what it was, I still haven’t found
    ?Fencehopper Drink so…but so much else. That way I found YOU!

    Louise has been through so much, many Doctors, is in great pain, cannot eat anything, and has lost half her bodyweight.
    She was slim before, now she is in pain to sit on the car-seat! Being a Mother, I am always searching for a clue to what is happening.

    Then to read your story and see all the other ways my Daughter is affected, match yours, I can hardly believe it, I definitely believe in Angels! I look forward to hearing from you and your journey, Take Care and Thank You from my Heart Irene x

      Hi Irene! WOW! I’m so glad you found my blog! Toxins from being a hairdresser can really really mess up your system! Has she gotten a 23andme test done? I would highly recommend her getting that done and I can help to point you in the direction of some of the best specialists that have helped me get my life back! Please keep me updated on what’s going on!
      XOXO
