DIRECTIONS

  • Mix water, 1 cup of the wine and the sugar in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil.
  • Add pears, lower the heat to simmer and cook the pears gently, about 10 minutes. Let cool slightly in cooking liquid.
  • Drain the pears, reserving the cooking liquid.
  • Puree the pears in a food processor until smooth (you should have 1 cup of pear puree).
  • Transfer to a mixing bowl and add the cooking liquid, the remaining wine and the limoncello to the bowl; mix well.
  • Pour into a shallow metal pan that will fit into the freezer and freeze.
  • Gently stir the granita every 20 minutes or until frozen to allow the mixture to freeze without separating and give the proper crystalline texture.
  • Once the granita is frozen, scrape the mixture with a spoon or ice-cream scoop into a pretty glass and serve immediately.
  • Garnish with lemon zest or a sprig of mint.
