Ingredients
  • 4 cups chopped cantaloupe
  • 1 1/2 cups California sparkling wine or rose
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • 4 to 6 fresh mint leaves, for garnish
Directions

Puree the cantaloupe in a blender until smooth. In a mixing bowl, combine the wine and sugar and stir until the sugar has dissolved; allow the bubbles time to settle. Add the pureed cantaloupe, the lime juice and the lime zest to the bowl. Stir well.

Pour the mixture into a 9-by-13-by-2-inch baking dish. Freeze for 2 hours. Remove from the freezer and, using a fork, scrape the granita into flakes. Freeze for another 2 to 3 hours.

Serve the granita in martini glasses, garnished with a mint leaf.
