Summertime Fizz: Granita and Cocktail

Happy [practically] Friday, every person! Can I fascinate you in a oh-so-summery mixed drink or boozy granita? With their common base of rum, grenadine, pineapple as well as lime juice, both variations are ideal for cooling down oneself off throughout the last month of summertime, or carrying you at any time of the year to an exotic island. Do not fail to remember the alcoholic drink umbrellas (as I did). Thanks!
