    Anyone have a recipe for the type of italian ice they make at Mario's? Love that stuff, especially the watermelon one!

    hello brschwartz.

    I found these recipes on the net I have not tried out myself yet.

    This site has the watermelon recipe you like and a lemon one

    http://www.sugarblossompastry.com/Recipes.shtml

    This page if you do a search for "Italian Ice" it gives you flavors like cherry and chocolate.

    I am not sure if they are the same as Mario's or not but it is a recipe. :)

    Hope they help

    There's a long chapter on making ices in Harold McGee's book, The Curious Cook. He doesn't specifically address Italian ices, except in a historical context, but he does lay out a system to make ices of virtually any texture and an exceptionally wide variety of fruits.(Pineapple-Avocado ice, anyone?)

    I got a hankering for Mario's style watermelon ices too, hoping someone has been successful in the past 4 years! The first link in the reply upthread is no longer alive.

    I spent 19 minutes in line last night with a mask on at Mario's. It's probably my 4 or 5th trip there this season.

    A friend suggested I make everything else, why not Italian Ice!?

    As a kid, I spent summers in NYC and its boroughs so while I am familiar with the scoopable Italian Ice from the carts, I vastly prefer the style available at Mario's.

    Does anyone have some suggestions for recipes?

    PS Mods no problem with merging this if it has been discussed elsewhere and I missed it.

    There is a post which went unanswered on how to store Italian Ice.

    What I have long intended to make at home is Granita. It is super easy: go break up the crystals every thirty minutes.

    I am sure the base recipe would be the same as any Italian ice.
