    Here's a cool treat for summer that does not require an ice cream maker. This looks great in margarita glasses or other fancy glasses.

    1. 1
      Chill a rectangular metal baking pan (15 x 9 x 2) in the freezer.
    2. 2
      Combine all ingredients in a blender or a large food processor until sugar dissolves (~1minute).
    3. 3
      Pour the mixture into the baking pan and freeze about 30 minutes, or until crystalls begin to form.
    4. 4
      Stir the mixture with a fork to loosen crystals; the goal is to evenly mix the crystals in the liquid.
    5. 5
      Break up any large clumps.
    6. 6
      place the pan back in the freezer and repeat the above step about every 20 minutes until the consistency is that of crushed ice (usually about 2 hours, depending on the freezer).
    7. 7
      Serve immediately.
    8. 8
      This can also be stored in an airtight container in the freezer.

      This is a really nice recipe. I found it easier to pour the mix into a large Ziploc bag, then onto the baking sheet. I have too many kids going in and out of the freezer at this time of year to risk a spill.
