Ginger-Grapefruit Juice Granita

READY IN: 5hrs 20mins
Recipe by Redneck Epicurean

This is so light and fruity like an Italian Lemon Ice, but...different. The flavors are unique and I wasn't a big huge fan of grapefruit until I got used to it. Some people like the "bite". This is very refreshing on a summer day served while enjoying a breeze.

I made this recipe replacing the Splenda with real sugar. Very refreshing but definitely has a "bite". My two roommates loved it but my boyfriend kept making sour faces. The recipe was good, but as a matter of personal taste too sour for me.
