Sparkling Grapefruit Granita

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups freshly squeezed pink grapefruit juice (3 to 4 large grapefruits)
  • 2 cups dry rosé Champagne
  • 1/8 teaspoon fleur de sel

Combine the sugar with 1 cup water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer for 2 minutes, until the sugar dissolves. Pour into a 9 × 13 × 2-inch rectangular (non-metal) baking dish. Stir in the grapefruit juice, Champagne, and fleur de sel.

Carefully place the dish on a level surface in the freezer. Freeze for one hour, rake the granita with a large dinner fork, and return it to the freezer. Continue to rake the granita every 30 minutes, until it’s firm and granular. This might take as long as 3 hours. Serve frozen in pretty bowls or stemmed glasses.
