More frozen grapefruit business

So we still have at least half of the grapefruit sorbet business, which actually without the machine turned out more like a granita. I've been eating it a couple spoonfuls of a time, since it's too pungent for an entire bowl. What should I do with the rest of it? I should put it in a glass and pour a slug of gin on top of it! Everyone loves a frozen drink, especially in nice only semi-frigid March. Yes.

If you add salt, it's even a frozen salty dog. That might play havoc with the texture, though.

Gin & juice slush

Pack as much granita as possible into a glass. Seriously, tamp it down; the gin will change its freezing point and make it into a slushy liquid. Add an appropriate amount of gin for your size of glass. I had a tiny rocks glass, so I added maybe half a shot of gin. Stir it up and examine the texture, then add more gin or granita if necessary.


You can clearly use vodka for such a thing as well. You could also use a reasonable white wine that plays well with citrus, or even some plain orange juice. Any kind of granita or sorbet would be fine too. I would be pretty happy with nearly any combination I can think of; what about cherry granita with limeade?
