Pink Grapefruit, Sparkling Wine, and Basil Granita

Serves 4-6

Ingredients

-100g sugar

-300ml caster sugar

-250ml pink grapefruit juice

-250ml sparkling pink wine

-2 tbsp Three Fruit Marmalade

-a few basil leaves and extra to garnish

Recipe

Combine the Three Fruit Marmalade, sugar, and water in a saucepan with a few fresh basil leaves. Bring up to heat to allow the sugar to dissolve and simmer for a few minutes. Remove the basil leaves and set them aside to cool.

Once cool, pour into a shallow container along with the grapefruit juice and sparkling wine.

Place the dish on a flat surface in the freezer. Freeze for 1.5 hours, then scrape the granita with a fork and place it back in the freezer. Repeat this process a couple of times, bringing the ice in towards the center of the dish, until it has a granular texture. Serve with a sprig of basil to garnish.
