  • Lime juice, plus 4 wide strips of zest - 1/3 cup

Method

  1. To make the granita, combine 2 cups of water, lime juice and sugar in a medium saucepan. Stir over a low heat until sugar dissolves. Add zest and teabag and bring to a simmer.

  2. Remove from heat to infuse for 3-4 minutes. Remove teabag and zest. Allow to cool, then stir in mint and transfer to a shallow metal tray. Freeze for 2-3 hours until set.

  3. Combine fruit in a large glass bowl and gently mix. Pour over wine and keep chilled.

  4. When ready to serve, take granita out of the freezer. Using a fork, scrape along granita to form ice chips and spoon over the fruit.
