Strawberry & Champagne Granita

A granita is a semi-frozen dessert that is usually made from simple syrup (the combination of equal parts of sugar and water boiled into a syrup and used for desserts and cocktails) and fruit or other flavorings. Similar to sorbet and Italian ice, this icy treat of Sicilian origin is a bit more crystalline. The ice crystals are usually made by scraping the frozen mixture with a fork in order to create the proper texture.
