Pickering's said: "The great American snow cone. A dessert you see in all the Hollywood films that you wish you could try yourself… well, what if we said you could make your own at home with just 3 ingredients?"

Ingredients

  • 1 bottle of Pickering's Pink Grapefruit and Lemongrass liqueur
  • 250ml Freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 250ml Pink Grapefruit juice

Method

Grapefruit & Orange Granita

Combine all 3 ingredients into a freezable container.

Place in the freezer overnight/for 8 hours, remove and mess it around with a fork.

Put back in the fridge for another 8 hours.

Remove when the mixture is full of chunky ice crystals and serve in a bowl with a teaspoon and a twist of grapefruit (or paper snow cone style cup if you want the real deal).

Serves 4 – 6 and is guaranteed to knock the flip flops off your guests.
