Cherry Ice


Similar to granita, this frozen dessert has a coarse, slushy texture; use a metal pan for the fastest freezing.

  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 cups pitted cherries, fresh or frozen, plus whole ones for garnish


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together wine, honey, and lemon juice until combined. Set aside.

  2. Place cherries in a food processor; pulse until finely chopped. Transfer to bowl with liquid mixture; stir until combined. Pour into a shallow metal pan and place in freezer. Stir with a fork every 10 minutes until mixture is slushy and partially solidified, about 35 minutes. Spoon into serving cups; garnish with whole cherries.

    Is there any way you could make this without the alcohol? It looks way yummy!
