Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
- 1 1/2 cups red wine
- 1/2 orange; juiced
- 1/2 lemon; juiced
- 1/2 lime; juiced
- 2 Tbsp. Triple Sec
- 6 Tbsp. sugar
1. Combine liquids, add sugar, and dissolve.
2. Pour into an 8 x 8 pan and place in the freezer for 1 hour.
3. Stir the mixture with a whisk, scraping sides, and return to freezer.
4. Repeat step three every 20 minutes.
5. When mixture is about 80 to 90 percent frozen, use a fork instead of the whisk.
6. Use a fork to stir the granita again just before serving. This produces mounds of loose crystals.
Note: The ultimate texture is up to you and how often and thoroughly you stir. I think the best have the mouth-feel of snow - as though flakes of sangria have formed high in the heavens and then drifted to earth. Whatever the texture, chill the serving bowls or glasses in the refrigerator to avoid having the granita melt too quickly.
