Cocktail on Ice

This recipe for Watermelon and Wine Granita is brought to you courtesy of Oprah Magazine.



  • 3 cups seedless watermelon chunks
  • 2 cups red Zinfandel
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp. dark brown sugar


Active time: 10 minutes
Total time: 3 hours

Using a blender, puree all ingredients until smooth. Pour mixture through a fine-mesh strainer, pressing with a spoon to extract as much juice as you can (discarding pulp).

Pour liquid into a shallow, freezer-safe dish and freeze 1 hour. Remove dish from freezer and stir granita with a fork to break it up, paying particular attention to edges of dish. Return granita to freezer, raking it with a fork every half hour until it is completely frozen and flaky.
