Grapefruit and Campari Granita

READY IN: 4hrs 10mins
Recipe by evelynathens

Grapefruit and Campari (and a splash of soda) is one of my favourite summer beverages. This granita is a sophisticated rendering of that. Freezing time has been noted as cooking time.

One of the best ways of using Campari! So refreshing! I feel the summer coming. We have -5 C outside, but the bright sunny day makes it 22 C in our glassed balcony.
