Celebrate this summer with a sweet, shaved ice cocktail. Prosecco and ginger ale, frozen with fresh blueberries, come together, light, bright and refreshing.
Blueberry Mint Granita
- 2 cups prosecco
- 1 cup ginger ale
- 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 sprigs of fresh mint, chopped fine
- Mint sprigs & blueberries for garnish
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl (except garnishes) until well-mixed. Pour into a shallow loaf pan or Pyrex. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for at least two hours.
When your granita is frozen, scrape with a spoon to create a shaved ice effect. Serve in champagne or cordial glasses.
Garnish with blueberries and fresh mint.
