Cranberry and champagne granita with berries

    • Method
    • Notes
    1. Step 1

      Place a 2L (8-cup) capacity metal slice pan in the freezer to chill.

    2. Step 2

      Place the water and caster sugar in a medium saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, for 3 minutes or until the sugar dissolves. Add the cranberry juice and craisins. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 5 minutes or until the mixture reduces slightly. Set aside to cool.

    3. Step 3

      Stir in the sparkling wine. Pour into the chilled pan. Place in freezer for 2 hours or until frozen around the edges. Use a fork to scrape the mixture into coarse crystals. Return to the freezer, scraping into coarse crystals every hour, for a further 4-5 hours.

    4. Step 4

      Remove the granita from the freezer. Set aside for 10 minutes to soften slightly.

    5. Step 5

      Meanwhile, combine the raspberries, blueberries, strawberries and icing sugar in a large bowl.

    6. Step 6

      Divide the berry mixture among chilled serving dishes. Scrape the granita into coarse crystals and divide among the dishes. Serve immediately.
