A delicate granite which can be served as a dessert or before your main dish. The addition of apple juice cuts the bitterness of cranberry and makes a delicious granita. You do not need an ice cream maker for this recipe. You can also prepare it the day before or the same day (at least 5 hours before serving).


  • 1 1/2 cups cranberry juice
  • 1/2 cup apple juice
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup of vodka GREY GOOSE L’Orange (or add a few drops of lime juice if desired)
  • Mint leaves for garnish


  1. Whisk the cranberry juice and sugar in a  medium saucepan over medium heat just until the sugar dissolves.
  2. Let cool completely and then add the vodka GREY GOOSE L’Orange (and/or lime juice).
  3. Pour the liquid into a 13 by 9 by 2-inch high glass baking dish.
  4. Put in the freezer for about 2 hours.
  5. For a nice grainy texture, scrape the surface with a fork to create crystals, put in the freezer 1 hour and repeat a few times after that for the last two hours of freezing.
  6. Serve in cocktail glasses and decorate with fresh mint leaves.
