Â½ cup sugar
2 tablespoons of honey
dash of cinnamon
Â½ shot of KahlÃºa
Â½ shot of Dark Rum
2 cups of double strength coffee
Brew the Coffee:
I found that a blend of 75% Kenya 25% Java Timor (roasted to a dark but not oily level) works particularly well as iced coffee and excels in this recipe.

Mix the Ingredients:
Mix the sugar, cinnamon and alcohol in a separate (glass) dish and add the hot coffee. Put the mixture in the freezer.
Freeze for 1 hour. Take it out of the freezer and use a fork to break up the ice.
Add 1/2 cup of crushed ice or chipped ice.
Continue freezing for a total of 3Â½ hours. Break it up every hour.
Spoon the granita mixture into a serving dish and garnish with whipped cream.
