Okay, Everyone, ‘Father’s Day’ is just around the corner (June 18, 2017) and I’m so ready with this Watermelon Ginger Beer Granita.

And 3 more drink recipes to help you bring a smile on your Dad’s face 🙂

I dedicate today’s post to all the wonderful Dads or ‘Super-Man’ as many of us know them as – We Love You Dad !!!

Watermelon Ginger Beer Granita

I’m ‘Daddy’s Girl’ and I say it very proudly as my dad has always me the freedom and believed in me + my dreams.

He’s always there guiding, encouraging, helping everyone in our family – friends.

Even strangers who ask for help and at the same time always there for his family too.

From my childhood, I always wanted to be like my dad and I do see that smile time to time when he sees me thinking or doing things like him.

And, also my Dad is my BIGGEST Culinary Critic!!!

He tells it on my face whether it’s good or bad …. he’s traveled all over the world, tasted the finest food/drinks, so when he says it’s ‘good’ – nothing makes me happier.

So every Father’s Day, I try to create a recipe around his likes and he loves his drinks and is very serious about them.

Hence, I’m combining two of his favorite things (out of many) and creating this Watermelon Ginger Beer Granita.

 Which has that added zing to it from the ginger beer and it tastes awesome with spicy food.


Have you ever tried making ‘Granita’ at home? 

It’s an Italian recipe and very similar to ‘shaved ice’ (barf ka gola) that we get in India or sorbet if you’ve tried that before.

Granita’s are usually coarser or have a more crystalize texture because they are scrapped using a fork every now and then to attain that perfectly separated crystal form.

It’s really really easy to make and a lot of fun too !!

” Seriously, there is something very relaxing in scrapping a bowl of ice than the whole backyard ” 



Quick Tip When Adding any kind of Beer or Alcohol to Granita Recipes

ALWAYS add the drink after the juice is made especially if it’s a beer as you don’t want to dissolve all those carbonated bubbles while making the juice.

For a refreshing taste with a zing, you want to add the beer just before you freeze the granita”.


That’s it, there is no other special thing needed, all you do is juice, mix and then scrape the ice from time to time till it resembles crystals.

Then serve when you’re ready or keep in an air-tight container in the freezer for upto 1-15 days (Just scrape once before serving)

Give this Watermelon Ginger Beer Granita a try on this Father’s Day or just about any other day or night.

As mentioned above, here are 3 more drink recipes (Click Recipe Pics for Link) which are absolutely popular on my blog and make’s for a great drink option for any celebrations:

    Such a refreshing summer granita recipe! Love the addition of ginger beer. I adore mixing ginger beer with fruit in cocktails, and I bet it’s delicious with the watermelon in this granita!
