Sangria Granita

You can make granitas from fruit juices and from wine, so why not both? When making this, don't worry too much about the quality of the wine. Anything drinkable with simple flavors not only works but works better than a complex wine because it stands up to the citrus flavors. My preference is for a basic Chianti.

Makes 6 to 8 servings

3 cups red wine

Juice of 1 orange

Juice of 1 lemon

Juice of 1 lime

1/4 cup Triple Sec

3/4 cup sugar

Combine liquids, add sugar and dissolve. Taste and adjust flavor, then refrigerate overnight to meld flavors. Pour into a 9-inch-by-13-inch pan and place in the freezer. Follow directions for freezing and serving in General Methods.
