As a palate cleanser or after-dinner drink for 4-6 people
1/2 cup Sugar
1 cup NUTRA-FRUIT 100% Pure Cranberry Juice
1 Lime, juice and finely chopped zest
1 oz. Vodka
Bring the sugar and cranberry juice to a boil in a small saucepan. Add the vodka and heat for 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the stove and add the lime juice and zest. Pour the mix into a shallow dish to get a thin layer of liquid about 1 cm thick. Place in the freezer. After an hour, remove from the freezer and scrape with a fork. Repeat 2 or 3 times. It will need to be frozen for about 5 hours before the granita is ready to serve. You can also freeze the entire mix (without scraping it) and just mix it in a blender to soften it before serving. Serve after a meal or as a palate cleanser. For Vodka-cranberry fans: pour an ounce of vodka into a shot glass then add a teaspoon of cold granita.
