The trickiest part of making granita with alcohol is making sure you have enough additional sugar and non-alcoholic liquid to help it freeze, because alcohol won’t freeze by itself. Here, I added a bit of lemon juice, water and sugar.

HINT: To pick the right rosé wine for you, you will need this rosé guide. I opted for a drier rosé wine because I added additional sugar.

To make this, you’ll add a thin layer of liquid to a flat dish or two that will fit in your freezer (I used two brownie pans) and rake it through with a fork every hour or two until frozen.

Serve scoops of it to your now-adoring friends, whether you’re hanging out poolside or throwing a dinner party.

    Super tart. Waaaaay too much lemon. I don’t even know why lemon is needed at all. Probably could have used more sugar as well. Really easy to make, but not the flavor I was going for. I’ll have to look for a different recipe or just make up my own.

      Hey Jeanine, I’m sorry the recipe didn’t work for you. I’ve made this a number of times, and I like my granita to have a good bit of zesty lemon flavor without being too sweet. If you prefer to just have a squeeze or two of lemon, I’d make up the difference in water to help the mixture freeze. I tend to use a sweetish rosé, but you can definitely use more sugar if your wine is more dry. If you make it again, I’d love to know what works for you!
