Gingered Grape Granitas (aka Transfusion Slushees)

Author - Serena Wolf
Prep Time: 4 hours
Yields: 4 -6 servings


  • 1 cup vodka right now I’m all about Tito’s
  • 2 cups 100% Concord grape juice I used Welch’s light Concord grape juice to cut the sugar/hangover factor
  • 2 cups ginger ale
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 4 sprigs fresh mint chopped (about 2 teaspoons)
  • For garnish: optional
  • 1 cup seedless grapes of your choice
  • 4-6 Fresh mint sprigs


  • In a 9” x 13” baking dish (or whatever baking dish you happen to own), combine vodka, grape juice, ginger ale, lime juice and chopped mint. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and place it in the freezer.
  • Use a fork to stir the mixture ever 45 minutes, making sure to scrape the edges and break up the ice as the mixture freezes, until your granita is completely frozen and has the texture of a snow cone, about 3-4 hours.
  • Scoop the granita into small bowls or cocktail glasses and garnish each with a few grapes and sprig of mint (if using). Serve immediately.
