CCD @ Home - Cool Blue Granita...

Cool Blue Granita
Cool Blue Granita

The Last time i was at Cafe Coffee Day in DLF Place Mall in Saket, Delhi with my friends and when i tasted the Cool Blue Granita that i ordered, I immediately realized that i can make this at my home, especially because of all the bar syrups i have at home...

I tried many times but never actually anything close to it, Today was indeed a special day because out of all the TV channels i selected NDTV GOOD TIMES to pass time along with Internet...

A show called "In High Spirits" was what i needed to get the exact idea of how to make it.

Every time i have tried till now, i used to crush ice and Add Blue Curacao Bar Syrup to it but i never got the desired result..

A small tip from that show changed everything, so here i am sharing with you what i did this time to get the result you can see in the picture on top.

1> Take a pitcher and Add crushed ice in it.. {i used a manual ice crusher and used around 16 ice cubes}

2> Add a lot of  Blue Curacao Bar Syrup {cant tell the exact quantity because i added it without measurement but see next step to get an idea}

3> Use a hand blender to blend it into slush so add the syrup just to make it into slush not too much that it becomes very thin or not less that it becomes very thick. {This is what i learned from that show}

4>Squeeze in Half a lemon into it.

5> Pour it into a Glass and a lil bit of Mint Bar Syrup just for that tangy flavour and Garnish the Glass with a slice of Lemon!!

Put in a straw and Enjoy Cool Blue Lemon Granita... and Beat the heat!!!

P.S> I dont know if this is the right way to make it but it was still really amazing and just the same as the CCD one!!

Pour in your comments and do tell me if you think i did something wrong or if you have some other idea in your mind...

JUIT V/S JIITU - Thank God I am a JUITian...

I thought I'll write about this topic after JIIT opens up for next semester but i guess i have seen all the shades of JIIT already so i can very well show you the difference between the two institutes... Although both of them are backed by the same great Jaypee group but only JUIT represents the true greatness of this group... Beautiful surroundings, awesome building,great learning atmosphere and above all great people...  Some of JUITians will disagree with me on several points but guys trust me no one knows JUIT better than me and come and spend a month here in JIIT you yourself will feel the difference...  I completed my graduation from Jaypee university of information technology waknaghat,solan {H.P}, A place which has given me so many great memories,some awesome friends, i met with some really nice and loving people... Even the faculty in JUIT is quite caring...  Its because of  HCL's Japanese language training that brought me to JIIT a sister institute of JUIT located in

Time to say goodbye, but to whom???

It’s been more than 4 years that I have spent in this place called JUIT… A place I was sure I wanted to get in when I saw the prospectus and luckily I got admission here… Life was full of ups and downs rather more down’s but at the end of it all I have a job in my hand which is enough for me to ignore those bad times… There a few things I have always been proud of like my association with almost all the clubs and activities especially technical and hospitality… besides the fact that except for my academics I was good at making things happen and that majorly because of my domain, everyone yes everyone in JUIT knows me… But now when its time to say goodbye to this great university, things are no more the same and not even the feeling… 4-5 months back when it was time for 2008 regular batch to leave it was altogether a different feeling even that time I felt as if I am also about to go but this time when we have just 20 more days here I am not getting that feeling. We got our farewell, sc
