Pour into one or two flat containers with a lid. Freeze for 1½-2 hours. Place your serving glasses in the freezer also.
Scrape the granita with a fork to make nice ice crystals. Put back in the freezer and repeat after 30 minutes.
Serve the granita in cold glasses with a fresh leaf of basil on top. It's really nice to eat this with fresh cut watermelon on the side. Enjoy!
The more you fork the granita, the better it will be.
The granita will last for up to 6 months in the freezer.
