Vanessa Luis
Sip on these before the year ends!

Christmas comes in many flavours. From sweet frosting to spiced up cinnamon and piquant berries, there’s a little bit of a festive feeling in all of them. My favourite of the lot, is, of course, those luscious berries that can be used in so many delicious dishes and drinks, including cocktails.  

Here are some tried and tested berry flavoured vodka drinks to sip on all your parties from Christmas to New Year.

Pinky Strawberry Granita
Skip the frozen margarita and sip on this frozen Smirnoff granita instead this festive season. It’s luscious red looking and tastes like frozen strawberries. What’s not to like about that! Don’t forget to make a big batch of this one because everyone loves a frozen drink. 
Ingredients 
100 ml Smirnoff vodka 
450 gm strawberries 
200 ml water 
200 gm sugar 
2 tbsp lemon juice 
Mint sprigs and strawberry, for garnish 

Method 
Combine water and sugar in a medium saucepan. Stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves. 
Bring to boil. Remove from heat. Chill the syrup. 
Blend the strawberries in a processor until smooth. Add sugar syrup, vodka and lemon juice. 
Pour mixture into a shallow glass bowl or baking dish. Freeze until almost firm, stirring frequently with a fork every two hours. 
Continue freezing granita until firm (do not stir), at least 3 hours or overnight. 
Using a fork, scrape the surface of the granita to form crystals and scoop into serving glasses.
