Summer's Buddy: Watermelon Granita Soda

"Cold & Refreshing"
The summer heat is just getting worse. Almost unbearable. Every time i go out for a short errand, i always come back with sunburn, even though i have the sunblock on. And the TV is always about the droughts, floods, global warming, bla bla. Depressing, really.

I really need to cool this heat off. I need a drink, something cold. and not alcohol because i am trying to keep that at minimum. In this case, no sugar added either, so no guilt in having them by the bowl full.

Watermelon Granita Drink

Watermelon flesh, cubed
Sprite or 7-up soft drink, cold

  Puree watermelon in a blender until smooth. Sieve it to remove all the seeds

  Pour into ziplock bag and freeze. Break the frozen bits every 30 min for 4-5 times so we will get small ice crystals instead. (note: This is good for Popsicle too)

To serve:
  Pour a bit of soft drink into pretty see through glass. scoop granita into it and garnish with a mint leaf.
