It's been hot hot hot here in Palo Alto, so I wanted to come up with a recipe that would be cool and delicious. That's why I excitedly created these strawberry and orange granitas.
For those of you who don't know, granita is an Italian dessert that's a cross between a snow cone and sorbet. It's sweet and icy, simple to make, and the key to getting the texture just right is to mix it every twenty minutes with a whisk while it's freezing in the freezer. Plus, I added a little champagne to each flavor to give them both a nice zing.
