Cuba Libre Granita {Pass the Cookbook}



I joined the fun for the Pass the Cookbook series kicked off by Kita, the culinary force behind the Pass the Sushi blog, a couple of months back. Her goal: cook from some unused cookbooks on her shelf...and get some other foodies to join her. Sign me up! This month, we're creating from Slushed by Jessie Cross. The subtitle made me chuckle: More Than 150 Frozen, Boozy Treats for the Coolest Happy Hour Ever!




Cuba Libre Granita
3 cups cola
¼ cup light dark rum (I only had dark rum!)
zest from 1 lime

Combine the cola and rum in a shallow, freezer safe dish. Gently stir in the lime zest. Freeze for 1 2 hours. Stir the mixture with a fork to break it up. Return to the freezer. Check and rake with fork every 30 minutes until the entire mixture is icy and frozen. Mine took about 4 hours total.

I also added a floater of dark rum on top...just for good measure. Cheers!
