Happy hour was a hit!!! After a long hot day, this white wine granita was the perfect adult snow cone. I chose Seven Daughters Sauvignon Blanc, but you can experiment with the white wine blend or the pinot...Now I just need to find that perfect outfit for tonight that will be just as cool..
White Wine Granita
2 cups full-bodied white wine
1/2 cup unsweetened apple juice
1/3 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
Dried apple slices, for serving
1. Place wine, juice, sugar, and ⅓ cup water in a bowl, and whisk until sugar is completely dissolved, about 2 minutes.
2. Pour into a 9" x 13" baking dish, cover with plastic wrap, and place in the freezer.
3. Using the tines of a fork, stir the mixture every 30 minutes, scraping edges and breaking up any ice chunks as the mixture freezes, until granita is slushy and frozen, about 3 hours.
4. Scoop into chilled serving glasses and top with apple slices, if you like. Makes 3 cups.
