The Sparkling Citrus Rosé Granita recipe post was made in partnership with Champs de Rosé. Recipe and ideas are my own.

Sparkling Citrus Rosé Granita

One of my favorite frozen treats is granita. Sometimes I’ll eat it instead of ice cream if I’m craving something cold and sweet. If you’ve had it before, you may recognize its course, icy texture that’s similar to Italian ice, but granita is made by hand instead of a machine which makes it that much more special!

Another reason why I love making this icy treat is that it reminds me of being back in Italy, sitting at a local cafe enjoying a delicious bowl of granita! If you think granita is only a summer dessert, you may be surprised to find out that Italians typically enjoy this cold refresher for breakfast year-round. Serve it with a dollop of whipped cream or over some yogurt with fresh fruit.

To make the Sparkling Citrus Rosé Granita all you need to do is combine and heat sugar, water, and star anise. Strain the mixture into a flat, wide container and add fresh citrus juice like orange, lemon, or grapefruit and Champs de Rosé Brut Sparkling, then freeze. It’s that simple, but just make sure you account for the few hours of time to properly freeze the granita.

And with New Year’s Eve just around the corner, try this recipe as a new and exciting way to enjoy some bubbly for the celebration! Or if you’ll be participating in Dry January, this can totally be made alcohol-free by replacing the bubbly with sparkling water or Italian soda! It was so much fun to collaborate with Champs de Provence for this recipe because their Champs de Rosé Brut Sparkling brings such bright flavors to a traditional granita recipe and it’s my preferred way to eat the frozen snack.

I’ve previously paired Champs de Provence Rosé with some of my other favorite cocktails, like the Cranberry Rosemary Spritz or the Spiced Pomegranate Rosé Spritzer, so feel free to check out those cocktails as well for some light and refreshing drinks! Champs De Rosé Brut Sparkling is lovely to sip on by itself, but it’s berry notes stand out even more when mixed in this Sparkling Citrus Rosé Granita!
