  • Summary

    Granita di Mandorle At Caffè Sicilia, this granita is served for breakfast along with a brioche and a shot of espresso—a wonderful way to start the day. Unlike most other granitas, it has an almost creamy texture. (The Caffè Sicilia almond paste, though pricey, is worth it: Incredibly moist and possessing a delicate floral quality, it tastes so pure that we actually eat it by the spoonful.)

    Ingredients

    • 1/3 cup almond paste (3 1/2 ounces; preferably Caffè Sicilia brand)
    • 2 tablespoons sugar
    • 2 cups bottled spring water (not carbonated)
    • Accompaniments: warm brioche; espresso
