Grapefruit-Mint Granita Recipes
Tart grapefruit bridled by the perfect amount of sugar, balanced with cool, fresh mint. Perfectly refreshing, simple, and elegant. Vegan.
- Juice of 2 fresh ruby red grapefruits (, about 2 cups)
- 1 cup boiling water
- 3/4 cup chopped fresh mint leaves
- 1/2 cup sugar
- Bring water, mint, and sugar to a boil in a saucepan, stirring until sugar is dissolved, then reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, 3 minutes. Add grapefruit juice and pour through a fine-mesh sieve, pressing hard on solids and discarding them. Cool completely.
- Freeze mixture in a 1 1/2- to 2-quart shallow nonreactive metal container, stirring and crushing lumps with a fork every 30 minutes until evenly frozen, 2 to 3 hours. Scrape with a fork to lighten texture, crushing any lumps. Spoon into glasses or bowls.
