When it's hot outside you might not always feel like heading into the kitchen to cook. However, Chef Michael Kloeti from Michael's on the Hill in Waterbury has a summer dessert that only takes minutes and four ingredients.
Mint Lime Granite
Yield 4 servings
½ Cup Lime juice, fresh
½ Cup Water, cold
½ Cup Granulated sugar
Place water and sugar into a pot and bring to a simmer.
Turn off heat and add the mint. Allow mint to steep for 10 minutes.
Once cool, add the lime juice.
Freeze mixture in a small container or pan.
Scrape the frozen ice in its container with the prongs of a fork, then scoop up and serve in a chilled glass.
For a decadent finish, drizzle with a shot of tequila.
