Active Prep Time:  10 minutes

Inactive Prep Time:  several hours or overnight

Serves:  4-6



4 oz Gustare Watermelon Rosé Balsamic Vinegar

1 small seedless watermelon for 4 cups of watermelon pulp (save a few slices

to make a little wedge for garnish on the rim of the glass/dish)

1 cup water

2 limes; zest of 1 and juice of 2

1 tsp. minced fresh mint

chilled dessert dishes or martini glasses


Mix all ingredients in a large bowl and  pour into an 8-inch glass pan. Cover with wrap to freeze until mixture begins to set, about 30 minutes. Uncover and rake a fork over the surface to begin loosening ice crystals – first one way and then the other. Return to the freezer. Continue raking the surface every 30 minutes until the mixture is a fluffy, frozen granita.

Spoon granita into chilled dishes and garnish with a tiny wedge of watermelon on the rim of the glass. Enjoy!

Note: Granita can be made ahead, wrapped and kept frozen for a few days.
