BurberrySicilianCoffeeGranita

And the winner is.. Burberry!

Fashion tasters from all over the world, we finally have the result of the survey that involved an outfit by Blumarine and one by Burberry Prorsum: a delicious coffee granita. A precious outfit, that of Burberry Prorsum, which highlights the ability of the creative team to make the classic outfits of the maison become timeless. Let him who doesn’t like this trench coat cast the first comment! For those of you who, like me, cannot help but to dream about it, I strongly recommend you prepare this Sicilian granita, which will bring you a little relief from the heat. Antò…it’s hot…

 

Recipe. FOR 4 PEOPLE

250ml (8.5 fl oz) coffee (possibly from the moka ) + 250ml (8.5 fl oz) water + 100ml (3.4 fl oz) whiskey cream (like Baileys) + 60g (2 oz) sugar + 1 vanilla bean.

Prepare the coffee. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, pour the water, sugar, vanilla bean and stir. Put everything on the stove and bring to a boil slowly, letting it boil for 1 minute. At this point, lower the heat, add the coffee and whiskey cream and mix well.  Remove from the heat and let the mixture cool. With the help of a sieve, pour the mixture (without the vanilla bean) in a container (either a glass or a steel one) and place in the freezer. After 1 hour, remove the container from the freezer and, with the tines of a fork, carefully break the ice crystals that have formed. Put the mixture in the freezer and repeat this step twice every 30 minutes. If you happen to forget the granita in the freezer, don’t worry… You can always remove it from the freezer 5 minutes before serving, smash coarsely with a fork (or knife); put the mixture in a blender (perhaps adding a drop of whiskey cream) and blend for a few seconds until you get the right consistency. Pour into small bottles and add a straw. The taste is guaranteed!
