What's in it


3 tablespoons water
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 3/4 pounds peeled and cored citrus fruit such as grapefruit, orange or pineapple
Pinch of coarse sea salt (kosher salt may be used)

How to cook it


  • Place the water and sugar in a medium sauce pan and cook over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved; remove from heat and let cool
  • Place the fruit in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until the fruit is pureed
  • Place a fine metal strainer over the saucepan of sugar syrup; pour 1/3 of the pureed fruit in the strainer and use a spatula or spoon to push the fruit against the strainer, squeezing the juices into the saucepan; discard the solids and continue until all the fruit has been strained into the saucepan
  • Stir the fruit and sugar water until fully incorporated and pour into a 9 x 13-inch baking dish; place the uncovered dish in the freezer
  • In one hour, remove the dish and use a fork to break up the fruit into small bits like shaved ice; repeat every hour until all of the liquid is frozen, approximately 3 hours
  • Spoon the shaved ice into a martini glass and serve immediately
