  • 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.
