Cantaloupe Mint Rosè Granita

This is an adults only dessert.  


1 cup sugar

1 cup cold water

2 cups of dry rosè

2 1/2 cups of chopped cantaloupe

1/4 packed mint leaves

1 tablespoon lemon juice


Add sugar and cold water to a pot. Bring to simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally until the sugar is fully dissolved – about five minutes. Cool pot on stove top. Blend cantaloupe and mint in a food processor in pulses until the mint is finely chopped.



Add a tablespoon of lemon juice to the simple syrup. Add the cantaloupe mint mixture and the rosè.  Stir until thoroughly blended.

Pour into a 11×7 glass dish and place in freezer for at least six hours.

Scrape slowly to create ice effect while serving.

The alcohol is intact in this.  Serve accordingly.

  2. I actually used 14 Hands. It was at my local store in a cute little can and I thought, “Hey short stuff, you are perfect for this little recipe I’ve got looping around in my head.” Please let me know how you like it!
