Refreshing and alcoholic, this is the perfect finale to a summer dinner party. This works well instead of a rich pudding or, if you’re feeling extravagant – serve this alongside a decadent pud. It is extremely easy to make and keeps in the freezer for up to six months.



Zest and juice of 1 lime

1 cucumber (approx. 300-350g)

300ml tonic water

70g sugar

75ml gin

Cucumber ribbons and mint to serve, optional


  1. In a small pan, heat the tonic water and sugar gently until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat and leave to cool.
  2. Blitz the whole cucumber in a food processer and then transfer to a large mixing bowl.
  3. Combine the cucumber with the lime zest and juice, gin and tonic and sugar mixture.
  4. Pour into a Tupperware container and place in the freezer overnight.
  5. Just before serving, remove from the freezer and roughly break up the granita with a fork
  6. Serve with cucumber ribbons, mint and an optional splash of gin!
