pink champagne granita
If you’ve never tried granita before, it’s like a delicious, grown up version of shaved ice. It’s also extremely versatile and simple to make at home, so you can create a granita out of just about anything. In this case, we're using festively pink champagne. More a process than a recipe, this dessert takes a little time and patience, but it’s well worth it.
To make, begin by creating a sugar syrup out of 2 ½ cups of water and equal parts sugar. Boil and cook until the sugar is completely dissolved, and then remove from heat and cool completely. Once cool, combine with one bottle of dry pink champagne, pour into a 9 x 13 inch pan (a similar size works too!) and place in the freezer. To create the shaved ice effect, remove from the cold every 20 minutes and scrape with a fork until the mixture is frozen, but still resembles (yep!) shaved ice. Serve in champagne glasses for an ultra glam presentation and a fun nod to the main ingredient.
