Tropical Fruit Granita Recipe at
To make a simple syrup, bring the water and sugar to a boil and boil for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool. Hold the passion fruit over a strainer set over a bowl, cut the fruit, and scoop out the flesh and seeds into the strainer. In 1/4-cup increments, pour orange juice over the seeds and press the fruit juice through strainer to obtain a total volume of 2 cups. In a blender or food processor, puree the pineapple with the simple syrup and strain into a bowl. Add the passion fruit-orange juice, champagne, and white rum. Pour mixture into a baking dish that will evenly distribute the liquid to a depth of 1/2 inch. Freeze for at least 6 hours.

Drag a fork over the surface of the frozen granita to create ice crystals. Spoon mixture into chilled dessert glasses, garnish with fresh mint leaves, and serve at once.
