    Sommer Clary's Note:

    Is it a dessert? Or is it a cocktail…? That is the great thing about this recipe—it can be both! This is a creative twist on two classic favorites. Notice that I am using an already made margarita mix rather than making my own; I usually make this for entertaining, so buying the mix is much more practical (and saves you from juicing a million limes!) Just make sure you buy a good one. If you prefer to make your own, that is fine. Just don’t add too much alcohol or it won’t freeze.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 2/3 cup golden tequila
    • 2/3 cup orange juice
    • 1 1/3 cups margarita mix
    • 1/4 cup Grand Marnier
    • margarita salt (or kosher salt)

    for garnish


    1. 1
      In a shallow, rectangular pan, combine the tequila, margarita mix, orange juice and Grand Marnier. Place in the freezer. After about 1 ½ hours, scrape the top with a fork to form “snow”, slowly working your way to the bottom of the pan. Return to the freezer. Wait another 1 ½ hours, and repeat this step. Repeat the scraping occasionally until it is ready to serve.
    2. 2
      To serve: rub the rim of a chilled martini glass with lime juice and dip rim in salt, scoop in the granita, and garnish with lime and orange twist. Serve immediately.
