Serves: 6
Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 1 hrs 30 min

Ingredients

  • 12 ounces Can of Ginger Beer
  • 1 pint Fresh Blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons Fresh squeezed lime juice

Directions

  1. Put blueberries & lime juice into a food processor and pulse until combined. This does not to be smooth since the signature part of a granita is it's grainy texture. If you are looking for a more refined finished product, then strain through a fine mesh sieve to remove the blueberry skins.
  2. Next, add the blueberry lime mixture to a 9x12 baking pan, I used a glass one. Stir in the ginger beer and transfer to the freezer.
  3. After 30 minutes take a fork and run it through the mixture to loosen it up, we are trying to achieve a grainy end product here and prevent a solid chunk of ice. Repeat at least 2 more times until you have a frozen kind of slurry result. If you don't use it all, you can transfer to a covered container and keep in the freezer, keeping in mind that it may need some additional thawing time before serving.
