Champagne Cantaloupe Granita
- 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
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.
Serve the granita in martini glasses, garnished with a mint leaf.
