Broken Fence Granita

Perfect For An After Dinner Treat!
Difficulty: Easy
Prep Time: 5-6 hours
Cooking Time: No cooking required

2 cups Broken Fence Red Wine or Pinot Noir, Merlot
1/2 cup sugar
mint leaves for garnish

Cooking Tools
Shallow baking dish

In a shallow baking dish; add 2 cups of wine and 1/2 cup sugar and whisk.  Allow sugar to melt completely before placing in the freezer. Within the hour, remove the baking dish from freezer and using the fork, start scraping the ice as some of the wine will start to freeze. (Keeping the wine shallow will allow the wine mixture to freeze quicker).  Place back in freezer and repeat this process every hour for about 4 hours.  The higher the alcohol content, longer it will take to crystallize. Place in dessert dishes, garnish with mint leaves.  Serve immediately as a palate cleanser between dinner courses or as a after dinner treat.
Serve 4
