I've been wanting to try a granita recipe for a while -- and when I spotted this one that uses red wine as a base it was a matter of days before I got to work on this summer treat! I served it with a dollop of freshly whipped cream -- but it would also be great with ice cream (vanilla, coconut or even a rich berry flavor). This dessert is easy to make the day before you wish to serve it and all you have to do is assemble right before you serve it - plus it just looks so pretty! Read on for the recipe!
