DIRECTIONS

  • In a saucepan, heat the sugar and water until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  • Remove from heat and add the Champagne; stir in the creme de cassis.
  • Pour mixture into 2-quart container (sides should be about 2 inches high) and place in the freezer.
  • Begin checking it after about 1 hour; once it begins to freeze around the edges, take a fork and stir the mixture, breaking up the frozen parts near the edges into smaller chunks and raking them toward the center.
  • Return dish to freezer, then check mixture every 30 minutes afterward, stirring each time and breaking up any large chunks into small pieces with a fork, until you have beautiful, fine crystals.
  • Because the granita may melt rapidly, suggest spooning into chilled goblets and letting rest in the freezer until ready to serve.
