Accessories you need
If you want to serve to non-drinkers or children then at Step 3 only add ice and blend to preferred consistency.
Pour out half of the granita and then add 75-100g rum to remaining mixture and blend for 30 seconds.
If you'll be making more than one batch, mill triple the amount of sugar and mint and set it aside. That way you won't have to wash and dry the bowl in between batches.
