Sangria granita

Start your evening off with a bang!
 


 
 

Ingredients

 
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 Tbs. granulated sugaréé
  • 3/4
    c
    Hill & Dale Dry Rosé Merlot
  • 2
    tbsp
    fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4
    c
    fresh orange juice
 
 

Method

 
Combine the wine, 1/2 cup water, and sugar in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 1 minute. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the orange and lemon juice. Let cool. Pour the wine mixture into a 9-inch-square shallow baking pan. This pan size works best because it provides a large surface area, a key point in speeding up the freezing process. To further hasten freezing, use a metal pan (metal conducts cold well). Put the pan in the freezer and stir every 30 min., being sure to scrape the ice crystals off the sides and into the middle of the pan, until the mixture is too frozen to stir, about 3 hours, depending on the individual recipe and on how cold your freezer is (some granitas can freeze in as little as 1 hour). Use a large dinner fork to stir and scrape; the tines are perfect for breaking up ice crystals. Cover the pan with plastic and freeze overnight. When ready to serve the granita, place a fork at the top of the dish and pull it toward you in rows, moving from left to right and rotating the pan as well. Scrape up the shaved ice and fill your chilled glasses or bowls.
