Girls’ Night In – Archers and Cranberry Granita

This is a bit of a cheat’s dessert, as it’s so easy.  It’s perfect for a girlie night in.

250ml pre-mixed Archers and Cranberry Juice in a can

1. If you’re going to serve your granita in a martini glass, then one can will serve two people.  If you have larger glasses or want to be more extravagent, use one can per person.

2. Pour the liquid into a freezer-proof container and freeze overnight.

3. When you are ready to serve, use a spoon to break up the mixture into small crystals.  The alcohol content of the mixture means the liquid won’t freeze fully and you’ll only need to break the mixture up once just before serving, rather than several times as you would with a traditional granita.

4. Serve in a cocktail glass.

Of course, you can try this with other premixed cans, or you could experiment with your own alchoholic mixtures.
