Celebrate National Rosé Day with a slushy summer favorite.
As happens every spring, “Rosé season” has been officially announced. Of course why limit any wine to just a season? We enjoy a chilled pink year round.
The granita recipe is a great summer treat and it’s also a beautiful companion for the holidays, a New Years Eve celebration or to show your perfect Valentine a bit of love.
Although not a “true” granita, this slushy treat 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.
