Granita is a semi-frozen dessert made from just a few ingredients. This icy treat is originally from Italy where it’s popular to eat at any time of the day and year-round. Granita is similar to sorbet, but more crystalized with a crunchier texture. The base of it usually consists of fruit juice, but the beauty of granita is that it can be made from many different ingredients. So, you can get creative and make your own version since the process is super simple. So, if you’ve never made granita before, this is your sign! Enjoy something fresh, frozen, and exciting, like the Spakler Granita!
I can’t believe 2021 is over and we’re heading into 2022. It feels like this year went by in a blink of an eye. Now, it’s time to get your party dresses on, pop some bubbly, and celebrate the new year. And for this occasion, I’m excited to try something unique for my New Year’s celebration, like this Sparkling Granita!
Granita is all about simplicity. Grab a few ingredients from your supermarket, mix, and freeze. That’s it! Check out what I used to create this spiked New Year treat.

The Sparkler Granita can be whisked together in three simple steps. All you have to do is mix your ingredients, freeze, and scoop. The hardest part about this recipe will be waiting for the mixture to freeze! Something to note: alcohol melts very quickly, so once your granita is frozen and scooped into your preferred dish, enjoy it immediately.
For the Sparkler Granita recipe, start by adding the Seagram’s Escapes Strawberry Guava, sparkling rosé, and white cranberry juice to a shallow container and whisk to combine. Then, pop this mixture in the freezer for 5-6 hours. Try and resist the urge to check on it frequently as opening the freezer might delay this process (trust me, from experience).
Then, remove the frozen mixture from the freezer and scrape the granita with a fork or spoon, breaking apart any large pieces. The granita should be dry and flaky in texture. Scoop into 3 or 4 coupe glasses and garnish with a strawberry, mint sprig, and sparkler pick. Enjoy!
