Summer time, family & friends gathering to celebrate Christmas & a nice cold champagne cocktail. We all know that strawberries are a perfect match to champagne, so when I was asked to create a Christmas themed menu to showcase the Optimum Thermocook, I instantly thought I must create a granita recipe that can easily be used as the base for a champagne cocktail - perfect!!
This granita is so easy, I love that you don't need to add sugar to the recipe as you allow the natural sweetness of the berry to shine. This granita is also perfect to eat on its own, and a great alternative to store bought ice cream that is full of preservatives & sugar.
