Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup turbinado sugar
  • One 2-inch piece ginger, peeled and grated
  • 5 tablespoons lime juice
  • Lime zest, for garnish
Directions
  • Special equipment: a meat tenderizer

  • Combine 5 cups water and the turbinado sugar and ginger in a medium pot. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then turn off the heat and stir in the lime juice. Let cool to room temperature.

  • Pour the mixture into a 9-by-13-inch metal baking pan and place in the freezer. Freeze until completely frozen, about 4 hours or up to overnight.

  • Take the pan out of the freezer when it becomes a giant ice cube. Smash the frozen block with a meat tenderizer and scoop crushed granita into chilled martini glasses. Garnish with lime zest and serve immediately. Freeze any remaining granita until ready to serve.
