Celebrate the sunny season with this cocktail-inspired dessert

3 Syns per serving

5 minutes plus 3 hours freezing

Serves 4


  • 75ml Aperol liqueur
  • 400ml soda water
  • 125ml Prosecco
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 125ml orange no-added-sugar squash (65ml if using double concentrate)
  • 1 orange, thinly sliced, to decorate


  1. Mix all the ingredients (except for the sliced orange) together in a large jug. Pour into a shallow, freezer-proof, lidded container, then seal and freeze. After 30 minutes, scrape the frozen mixture with a fork to break up any large ice crystals, seal and refreeze, then repeat this 5 times more every 30 minutes. The granita should look like slush when it’s ready.
  2. Spoon the granita into 4 glasses and decorate with the slices of orange — and cocktail umbrellas, if you have any!
