In the past I had been jealous, even quite envious when I would see that other bloggers had received a sample of this cute little bottle of POM Wonderful pomegranate juice.
But finally, I got my turn. It's some seriously good stuff to drink straight from the (incredibly cute) bottle. But I wanted to make something out of it. So I decided on granita, from Dave Lieberman's recipe found at Food Network.
It's the easiest thing ever, just a bit tart, and very refreshing. I halved the recipe and it made plenty.
In a large bowl, combine the 2 juices and season with sugar, to taste. Pour into a 9 by 13-inch baking dish. Carefully place in freezer and freeze until solid, about 4 hours. Use a fork to scrape into large crystals and spoon granita into chilled glasses. Serve immediately.
