This spicy tomato granita makes a refreshing summer appetiser. It's reminiscent of a Bloody Mary in frozen form.


  • 4 T vodka
  • 3 cups tomato juice
  • 1 chilli, chopped
  • 1 cucumber
  • 2 sticks celery
  • 12 cherry tomatoes, to garnish
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to serve

Cooking Instructions

1. Mix together the vodka, lemon juice, tomato juice and chilli, and pour into a plastic container. Place in the freezer and leave until frozen. Stir the mixture from time to time until it has a coarse, grainy texture.

2. Using a vegetable peeler, peel the length of the cucumber and celery sticks to form ribbons. Place in iced water and leave to curl.

3. Place the ribbons in a glass then spoon over the tomato granita. Garnish with a few leftover cucumber ribbons, cherry tomatoes and lemon wedges, and a grinding of black pepper.

Cook’s note:
To make a cucumber bow, tie the cucumber ribbon as you would a fabric or paper ribbon.
