Ingredients

  • 1 Cup prosecco
  • 1 Cup sugar
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 6 sprigs of mint
  • Pinch of salt
  • 5 ripe, medium peaches (about 2 pounds), chopped

Directions

In a small saucepan, combine the prosecco, sugar, juice of 1 lemon, mint, and salt. Bring to a simmer and cook just to melt the sugar, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool.

When the prosecco syrup has cooled, put it in a blender with the peaches and remaining lemon juice. Purée until smooth.

Pour into a wide, shallow metal pan so the mixture comes about 1 inch up the sides. Put in the freezer.

Once ice crystals begin to form around the sides of the pan, about 1 hour, scrape the granita with a fork to incorporate the crystals back into the slush. Keep freezing and scraping every ½-1 hour until the granita is completely frozen in light, fluffy crystals.
