Green Grape Slushies

As seen on: Giada Entertains, Episode 1. Jade's Slumber Party.
Add the grapes and the lime zest to a blender. Blend on high for 2 minutes. Add 1 1/2 cups soda and puree for another minute. Pour into a 9 by 13 inch pan and freeze for approximately 3 hours or until frozen. Using a fork, scrape and stir the mixture forming little shards of frozen grape. To serve, scoop into small juice glasses, top with a 1/4 cup lemon lime soda and garnish with a red grape skewer. Serve with a spoon and straw.
Cooks note: To make the skewers, simply place 3 to 4 red grapes on each toothpick or skewer and freeze on a rimmed baking sheet.
