sangria granitas

hello sunshine :)
thank you for coming out to play!

to help you all enjoy this gorgeous summer weekend,
i thought i'd share my current favorite recipe....

let's be honest, you know it already sounds amazing.

try it! i almost ate this whole bowl :)

recipe adapted from cooking light

1 cup 100% concord grape juice
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons finely grated orange rind
+ juice of half the orange
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon rind
+ juice of half the lemon
1 3/4 cups fruity red wine


1. combine juice and sugar in a small saucepan over medium-high heat;
bring to a boil. cook 1 minute, stirring until sugar dissolves.
remove from heat. stir in rinds; cool completely.

2. strain mixture through a fine sieve into a bowl; discard solids.
stir in wine. pour into a glass bowl or baking dish.

3. cover and freeze for about 45 minutes; scrape with a fork. freeze.
scrape mixture every 45 minutes until completely frozen (about 5 hours).
remove mixture from freezer; scrape entire mixture with a fork until fluffy.

(okay, obviously i didn't sit around scraping my granita mix every 45 minutes,
but if you do it a few times before it's completely frozen - you'll be good) :)

4. serve on a hot day and rejoice! :)
