Spiked Cappuccino Granita

A spiked granita filled with coffee and sugar and booze sounds just about right when you need to cool down or chill out, right? My take[ is a cappuccino granita with brown sugar, cream and cinnamon-and a dab of coffee liqueur.]

Ingredients
  • 16 ounces strong brewed hot coffee
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons coffee liqueur, such as Kahlua, plus extra for drizzling
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, plus additional for garnish
  • Suggested garnishes: Fresh whipped cream or marshmallow frosting, dark cocoa powder
Directions
  • Whisk the coffee and sugar together in a large bowl or measuring cup, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Whisk in the cream, liqueur, vanilla and cinnamon until combined. Pour the mixture into a freezer-safe baking dish. Freeze for 2 hours, then bring it out and scrape the mixture with a fork. Continue to scrape the dessert every hour for 4 to 6 hours before serving.

  • Spoon the granitas into 4 glasses. You can add a few drizzles of liqueur to make it less icy and more boozy. Top with fresh whipped cream or marshmallow frosting and a sprinkle of dark cocoa powder and cinnamon.
