  • 4 1/2 cups fresh orange juice (from 14 oranges)
  • 3/4 cup superfine sugar
  • Elderflower liqueur, such as St-Germain
  • 2 bottles (750 mL each) Champagne


  1. Step 1

    Combine orange juice and sugar, and stir until sugar dissolves. Transfer to an 8-inch square baking dish. Freeze, scraping around sides and breaking any lumps with a fork every 30 minutes, until evenly frozen, 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Cover with plastic wrap. Granita can be made 1 day ahead and kept in freezer until ready to serve.

  2. Step 2

    Spoon 1/2 cup granita into each of 12 glasses, and add 1/2 teaspoon liqueur. Top off with Champagne.
