Red Wine Granita

  • 1 c. water
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 (750 ml) bottle full bodied red wine
  • Juice of 1 orange
  • Juice of 1 lemon

Make a syrup by combining the water and sugar in a noncorrosive saucepan and bring to a boil. Simmer the mixture for five minutes. Remove the syrup from the heat and cool.

Combine the syrup, wine, orange juice and lemon juice and pour the mixture into two 8 x 8-inch cake pans. Cover them with plastic wrap and freeze them until the mixture is set, about 4 hours.

To serve, scrape the granita with a spoon or fork to create small shavings and spoon it into individual chilled wine glasses.

  • Yields: 8-10 servings
