Sophisticated and simple, this granita takes in-season fruit and glams it up with wine and honey. Try it as a make-ahead treat for a dinner party with friends.


  1. Check cup sugar
  2. Check pounds apricots (about 9), pitted and quartered
  3. Check 2 tablespoons honey
  4. Check cup white wine
  5. Check Whipped cream, for serving


  1. Combine the sugar and ½ cup cold water in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved, then remove from heat and let cool completely.
  2. Puree the apricots and honey in a food processor or blender. Add the cooled sugar syrup and white wine and pulse once to combine. Transfer mixture to a 9-inch square metal baking pan. Cover and freeze until the edges start to set, about 45 minutes. Stir with a fork, breaking up some of the pieces, then return dish to the freezer. Continue to scrape the mixture every 20-30 minutes until completely frozen and fluffy, about 2 to 4 hours. Serve the granita with whipped cream if desired.
