Posted in Vinum Vine by Vinum Vine on June 19, 2012

A French dessert wine and grapes add sophistication to this simple granita, which requires only four ingredients and a freezer.


  • 10 ounces red seedless grapes (about 2 cups)
  • 3 tablespoons Sauternes
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon sugar


  1. Cut about half of the grapes in half. Spread all of the grapes in an 8-inch square baking dish. Pour Sauternes and water over grapes, and sprinkle with sugar.
  2. Place dish in freezer until liquid has started to crystallize on the top and at the edges, about 1 hour. Scrape granita with fork tines, transfer to individual glasses, and serve.
