Summer Berry Vodka Granita

Summer Berry Vodka Granita Recipe - red, white, & blue drink and dessert for 4th of July or summer party!

Happy 4th of July! If you’re looking for a last minute easy dessert (that could double as a cocktail), this frozen Summer Berry Vodka Granita recipe will fit the bill! Strawberry, blueberry, and ginger ale granita with a secret ingredient…Pinnacle Rainbow Sherbet vodka! Delicious, and only a few ingredients! 

Summer Berry Vodka Granita Recipe | snappygourmet.comSo it’s not quite red, white, and blue (it’s a bit more pink, white, and purple…) but this vodka granita recipes is delicious and perfect for a hot summer day and 4th of July. It’s an easy recipe, but does take a few hours since you do need to scrape the ice every 15-20 minutes or so. I used (defrosted) frozen strawberries and blueberries but you could also use fresh berries. If you do use fresh strawberries or blueberries, you may need to add a little more liquid to the blender to get everything smooth.

Summer Berry Vodka Granita Recipe | snappygourmet.comIf you’re looking for more of a cocktail rather than a dessert, I’d suggest leaving the granita out for a just a little while so it’s more slushy. Or you could also add a little ginger ale to the glass to soften it up a bit.

Summer Berry Vodka Granita Recipe | snappygourmet.comSummer Berry Vodka Granita would actually be good with just about any kind of summer fruit and not just strawberries and blueberries, so mix-it up a bit and try different flavors. The Pinnacle Rainbow Sherbet really gives it a nice flavor without being too strong.
