Pousse café granité

A lovely shave ice (granité) that alludes to a coffee with liqueur. In this recipe, we add some gelatine to make sure that the ice crystals do not melt too fast. The alcohol, in particular, increases the rate at which the ice melts. Of course, you can vary this recipe with other liqueurs or flavours of your choice.
