Summer is on its way and this sensuous delight should be on the menu.
As happens every spring, “Rosé season” has been officially announced. Whatever that means. Everyone seems forget it is available throughout the entire year, although it is often labeled purely a spring or early summer sipper.
The wine and the recipe below are delicious any time of year and are beautiful companions for the holidays, a New Years Eve celebration or to show your perfect Valentine a bit of love.
While this recipe is not a “true” granita, it will delight your senses and dance in your mouth. It’s simple enough to whip up for girls night, Sunday Brunch, Mother’s Day or front porch sipping to chill the summer heat. Invite your neighbors, they will love you.
Experiment! Try Raspberries or a different fruit, remembering to strain out seeds and other solids.

Rose of Garnacha by Ruby Magdalena Vineyards ~ An award-winning rosé with aromas of strawberry, raspberry and white peach. Subtle fruitiness and a pleasant balance of light sweetness to crisp acidity makes this an approachable wine. Your mom will love this pretty pink bottle of Rose of Garnacha.
**I tested three different recipes that simply didn’t work they way I thought they should. I finally found the perfect and simple recipe by Bon Appétit. ~ original recipe here.
