#186 Kalamansi Granita

Kalamansi (Philippine lime) granita is the ultimate summer treat when the tropical heat beats down on you and nothing can slake your thirst except the good old Philippine kalamansi.

Granitas are ice-based desserts usually flavored with fruit juice. Making a kalamansi granita is easy (the problem for Pinoy expats is how to find kalamansi or the juice extract,) and uses only water, sugar and kalamansi juice which are mixed and poured into a shallow pan and placed in a freezer. Describing the unique taste of Philippine kalamansi is like describing a nostalgic Philippine sunset. There is a slight taste of orange in Philippine lime, a certain zest not found in other limes. One has to taste the fruit in order to appreciate it.

Long live Philippine juice drinks!
