Grapefruit Campari Granita

Campari adds a bitter note to sweet Ruby Red grapefruit juice in this refreshing granita. We like to enjoy this peach-hued treat as a pre-dinner aperitif.

Yield: serves 4-6

Ingredients

  • 2 cups freshly squeezed Ruby Red grapefruit juice
  • 12 cup Campari
  • 12 cup sugar
  • 12 vanilla bean, split lengthwise, seeds scraped and reserved

Instructions

  1. Purée juice, Campari, sugar, vanilla seeds, and ⅓ cup water in a blender. Pour into a 9″ x 13″ baking dish, cover with plastic wrap, and place in the freezer. Using the tines of a fork, stir the mixture every 30 minutes, scraping edges and breaking up any ice chunks as the mixture freezes, until granita is slushy and frozen, about 3 hours.
