Blueberry Basil Vodka Granita
1 pint blueberries
8 basil leaves
1/3 cup simple syrup (1/3 cup sugar dissolved in 1/3 cup water)
3 ounces vanilla vodka
3 ounces Lillet
- In a blender, combine the blueberries and basil and puree.
- Add the simple syrup, vodka and Lillet and blend to combine.
- Pour in a small container with a cover that can go in the freezer. I used a glass covered container the size of a small loaf pan.
- Put the container in the freezer and freeze. After about 3 hours, take out and fluff the frozen liquid with a fork. Freeze a couple more hours or overnight, taking it out every once in a while to fluff up the ice with a fork so that it is slush consistency. For me, I left the granita overnight and fluffed it the next day and it was a consistency.
- Serve and slurp!
