Cook's Notes

Chilling the dish in the freezer before pouring in the lime mixture will help the granita freeze faster.

    It's supposed to be a frozen dessert/palate cleanser (hence "granita" in the title of the recipe, google "granita" if you don't know what it is). It is not supposed to be an actual margarita, just have the flavors of one.
