Ingredients

  • 1 Cup(s) Apricot jam
  • 1/4 Cup(s) Fresh lime juice
  • 2 Teaspoon(s) McCormick® Crushed Red Pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon(s) McCormick Gourmet™ Ancho Chile Pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon(s) Sea salt from McCormick® Sea Salt Grinder
  • 4 Cup(s) Cubed seedless watermelon
  • 2 Cup(s) Dry rosé wine
  • 1/2 Cup(s) Chamoy Sauce
  • 1/4 Cup(s) Fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 Teaspoon(s) McCormick® Chili Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon(s) Sea salt from McCormick® Sea Salt Grinder

Directions

1. For the Chamoy Sauce, place all ingredients in blender container; cover. Blend on medium speed until smooth. Store in covered container in refrigerator up to 5 days. (Makes enough Chamoy Sauce for 2 batches of Watermelon Granita.)

2. For the Chamoy Watermelon Granita, place all ingredients in blender container; cover. Blend on high until very smooth.

3. Pour mixture into large freezer-safe container (about 13×9-inch size). Cover with plastic wrap. Freeze 3 to 4 hours, stirring and scraping mixture with a fork every 30 to 45 minutes to create a fluffy, shaved ice texture.

4. To serve, scoop or shave frozen mixture into serving bowls. Garnish with watermelon wedges sprinkled with additional chili powder, if desired.
