Of course to get the great flavors in this sugar free blue mermaid vodka granita I use my favorite Torani Sugar Free Syrups. The Torani Sugar Free Blue Raspberry is a favorite in my house. The kids love adding a splash to their sparkling water for a fun, kid-friendly drink. I’ve used the Torani Sugar Free Pineapple syrup in my Sugar Free Strawberry Piña Coladas and boy are those tasty! Torani offers over 100 flavors, so there is a flavor for everyone!
Torani and I really want you to have a fun, flavorful summer. So we are giving away a year’s worth of Torani syrups to one lucky winner! That’s 12 bottles! And the lucky winner gets to choose their favorite flavors. Scroll to the bottom of this post to enter!
For this sugar free blue mermaid vodka granita I used coconut milk as the base, but almond milk or even half and half would work too!
You are going to want a freezer safe dish for this granita and a flat spot in the freezer. Um I had to clear out a space, but I’m convinced that I need a second refrigerator.
The fun part of making this granita is raking it with a fork as it freezes. I usually check it after having it in the freezer for one hour and then every half hour after that.
I only used a 1/4 cup of vodka to make this blue mermaid vodka granita, because I wanted to make sure the granita would actually freeze. If you feel like you want a little more of a kick from the vodka, just add a bit after it has frozen, right before serving. No judgement here!
Whisk the ingredients together in a bow until combined.
Pour into a shallow, freezer-safe dish. Let freeze for an hour then pull out and break up any frozen parts with a fork. Put it back in the freezer and check after another 30 minutes. Continue raking the granita with a fork every 30 minutes until the mixture is completely icy.
