Lemon-lime and Bitters Granita
Mix up Lemon-Lime and Bitters Granita, made with 7UP®, today. Mix freely, drink responsibly.
3 cups 7UP®
1/2 cup gin (old world botanical)
1 tbsp. Angostura bitters
Slice off top of lemons and limes to reveal segments.
Slice off the bottom enough so they can sit without wobbling.
Run knife along interior of each fruit to remove the pulp.
Press removed fruit’s pulp into mesh strainer, reserve the juice.
Place juices and 1 cup 7UP® in a saucepan; reduce until syrupy.
Remove from heat and cool completely.

Pour mixture into a shallow baking dish (such as a 9x9-inch).
Freeze for 3-4 hours until firm, and prepare serving cups.
Using a fork, scrape to form “granita.”
