Rose water granita

Yields Serves 6 to 8
Rose water granita

In a large bowl, stir together the Prosecco and sugar until the sugar is dissolved.


Into a medium bowl, push the raspberries through a strainer to remove any seeds. You should have a scant one-fourth cup puree.


Whisk the raspberry puree in with the Prosecco, then whisk in the rose water. Strain the mixture again to remove any raspberry solids to form the granita base. This makes about 5 cups.


Place the base in a large baking dish. Freeze, stirring every half-hour or so until the granita is frozen. To serve, shave the granita, raking the tines of a fork across the surface to break up the crystals. Serve immediately.
