  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon Kahlua , optional

  • Place a 9x13 inch baking dish in the freezer.
  • In a bowl, stir the sugar into the hot espresso or coffee until dissolved. Add milk. Refrigerate until cool.
  • Pour the cooled coffee into the baking dish. Freeze for about 30 minutes, until ice crystals begin to form around the edges. Using a fork, stir and scrape around the edges to evenly distribute the crystals. Freeze for another 30 minutes and stir and scrape again, breaking up any large crystals that have formed. Continue freezing and stirring every 30 minutes until the entire mixture has crystallized, about 3 hours total. Cover and keep frozen until ready to serve.
  • Prepare the Kahlua Whipped Cream. Whip the cream on high in the bowl of an electric mixture until soft peaks form. Beat in the sugar and Kahlua or other flavoring.
  • Spoon the granita into individual glasses or bowls and top with the whipped cream. Garnish with cinnamon or shaved chocolate, if desired.
