Sour Cherry Syrup:


  1. Granita:
  2. Pour the water, tangerine juice, and lemon juice into a saucepan and place over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, add the honey and sugar, and stir until dissolved. Pour the mixture into a shallow metal pan and let cool to room temperature. Place in the freezer and stir every 30 minutes for 2 to 3 hours. You'll want the granita to be firm but not rock hard.
  3. Syrup:
  4. Place the cherries in the bowl of a food processor and process until smooth. Put all the ingredients into a saucepan and place over high heat. Let it come to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer for 10 minutes. Pour into a heatproof pitcher and let cool to room temperature.
  5. Assembly:
  6. Divide the granita among 4 martini glasses, top with fresh raspberries, and drizzle the whole thing with the syrup.
