Vodka Mixed Berry Granitas

1 pint strawberries
2 1/8 pints raspberries
1 orange thinly sliced
1 1/8 pint blackberries or blueberries
1 (750 ml) bottle vodka

berries reserved from the vodka berry recipe
1/8 pint fresh strawberries and raspberries
1 1/4 to 2 cups of sugar

Rinse berries and drain well. Layer strawberries and raspberries
in a 2-quart glass jar. Top with orange slices and blackberries.

Pour vodka over berries until fruit is covered, then cover the jar.
Save the empty vodka bottle.

Let berries macerate in vodka for three to six days. Strain the
berries from the vodka, then pour vodka back into the saved bottle.

Puree berries and strain through a fine mesh strainer. Pour strained
berry juice into large measuring cup. Measure the juice, then add
an equal amount of water. Pour into bowl.

Whisk in sugar to taste, at least 1 1/4 cup, and stir until dissolved.
Pour into a baking pan measuring 9 by 13 by 2 inches and place in
freezer until ice crystals form, about 30 minutes.

Use a fork to break up frozen crystals. Continue freezing and
stirring every 30 to 45 minutes until mixture is completely frozen
and ice crystals are uniform in size.

Scoop crystals into goblet and garnish with mint or extra berries.
Serve immediately. Serves 4 to 6.
