Oxmoor House JUNE 2007

  • Yield: 8 cups (serving size: 1 cup)
  • Prep time:6 Minutes
  • Other:4 Hours

Ingredients

  • 3 cups cranberry-apple juice drink, divided
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 (12-oz.) can natural ginger ale (we tested with Natural Brew Outrageous Ginger Ale)*

Preparation

Combine 1 cup cranberry-apple juice drink and sugar in a 2-qt. saucepan. Cook over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and cool completely.

Combine cran-syrup, remaining 2 cups juice drink, and ginger ale. Pour into 3 ice cube trays, and freeze 1 1/2 hours or until almost frozen. Transfer cubes to a blender or food processor, and pulse until slushy.

Pour slush into a 13" x 9" pan, and freeze 3 1/2 hours or until frozen.

To serve, scrape granita in pan with tines of a fork until fluffy. Spoon into dessert glasses, and serve immediately.

*Natural ginger ale has an intense gingery taste. Find it on the soft drink aisle or with beers, especially in upscale markets.
