Earlier this week I celebrated the prospect of an early spring by sharing a simple and refreshing citrus iced green tea and I decided not to quit while I was ahead and share this simple sea breeze granita, an equally refreshing treat, but a bit more…grown up! 🙂
The glorious thing about this dessert/drink/frozen vacation is that…drumroll please…..
There’s vodka in it!
Not only does that mean it makes momma happy, it also means it won’t freeze solid.
This frozen treat is the perfect dessert to serve at your “welcome back summer” cookout… or just about any meal! Plus, its super simple (duh) and takes only a few minutes of “work time”!
Here’s what you’re gonna need:
3 ounces cranberry juice
2 ounces grapefruit juice
1.5 ounces vodka
Zest and juice of 1 lime
Here’s what you’re gonna do:
Combine all ingredients in a baking dish and stir.
Place in a freezer for at least 3 hours, until “frozen”.
Remove from freezer and scrape with a fork until “fluffy”. Thanks to that vodka we added this step should be super simple!
Spoon into glasses and serve with lime!
I give you, a vacation in a glass!
