Aperol Granita Cocktail

  • Author: Beth Dunham


Rather than drinking a Aperol spritz cocktail with Prosecco, try this granita for a fun dessert and drink all in one.


  • 2 cups white grape juice
  • 1 cup water
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup Aperol
  • Mint sprigs for garnish


  1. Combine juices, water, and sugar in a heavy saucepan and set over high heat.
  2. Stir until the mixture until all the sugar is dissolved, and bring to a slow boil.
  3. Remove from the heat and let cool to room temperature.
  4. Add the Aperol and stir to combine.
  5. Pour mixture into a shallow pan and place in the freezer.
  6. Scrape the frozen mixture with a fork once every hour or so to break it up into smaller crystals.
  7. The granita will take about 4-5 hours to freeze. After it is completely frozen, transfer to a container with a tight fitting lid.
