Yield: Yields 2-1/2 pints.
This cool, refreshing dessert is creamier when made in an ice-cream maker, but you can make it granita style (more like an Italian ice) without any special equipment.

This recipe does NOT work: the mixture will not freeze in an ice cream freezer because of the alcohol content. While the tequila gets boiled down by half, the 1/2 cup of the orange liquor is too much alcohol to enable the mixture to freeze. In addition it is so cloyingly sweet that the lime flavor disappears.
