recipe: Apricot granita will brighten a dreary winter day
Mary Bilyeu | Contributor
The flavor of apricots lends itself to everything from sweet pastries to savory tagines. And it shines in this recipe, which is ridiculously easy to make and can be served in either casual or sophisticated settings with equal ease.
The sugar and alcohol contents in this treat prevent the mixture from freezing solid. So what you find yourself with is essentially a grown-up slushie — fun and festive!
Apricot Prosecco Granita
1/2 cup Prosecco (or other sparkling white wine)
1/2 cup Solo apricot filling
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the wine and the apricot filling. Place into a shallow container, cover, and freeze overnight. When ready to serve, scrape it with a fork to form an ice; divide among decorative glasses and serve immediately.
