Iced Raspberry Tea Granita
Yield: about 4 servings
  • ½ pound raspberries (about ¾ cup)
  • ½ pound strawberries (about ¾ cup)
  • ⅔ cup sugar
  • 1 cup raspberry iced tea (or other fruit tea)
  • ¾ cup Champagne
  • Grated zest of 1 lime
  • Handful of fresh raspberries for garnish
  1. In the bowl of a food processor, pulse the raspberries, strawberries, and sugar together until smooth. Add the iced tea, Champagne, and lime zest and pulse until combined.
  2. Pour the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve directly into an 8-inch square metal baking pan, cover tightly with aluminum foil, and put in the freezer. Use a fork to scrape or stir the mixture every hour for about 6 hours, or until the granita is frozen.
  3. Use the tines of the fork to scrape the granita, creating flakes. Divide the flakes evenly among 4 glasses, garnish each with a single raspberry, and serve with small spoons.
