- 3/4 cups water
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 2 cups passion fruit-orange juice (about 20 passion fruit and 1 cup fresh orange juice)
- 1 1/2 cups pineapple chunks
- 1/3 cup Champagne
- 1/4 cup white rum
- Fresh mint leaves
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 the 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 the 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 the mixture into chilled dessert glasses, garnish with fresh mint leaves and serve at once.
