Too Good To Be True: 3-Ingredient Granitas - Red and White Wine Granita Recipe

This summer dessert is a must, especially since you can prepare it in advance. 

Red Wine Granita: 

Serves 8-10 

 • 1 cup honey
 • 1 cup hot water
 • 1 bottle Cabernet Sauvignon

Directions: 

1. In a 9 x 13 inch pan, whisk together the honey and hot water until combined. 
2. Whisk in a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon. Place the pan on a baking sheet (to prevent freezer spillage) and place squarely in the freezer. 
3. Freeze for at least 4-6 hours (or up to 2 days) before "flaking" with the fork to create a slushy granita. 
4. Serve in paper cups, cones or small glasses. Add a layer of your favorite fruit. This is also great sprinkled over vanilla ice cream, yogurt or whipped cream. 

White Wine Granita:

 • 3/4 cups honey
 • 1 cup hot water
 • 1 bottle of Chardonnay
