Yield: About 12 small servings
Rating: Really easy! But does require some attention over a period of 5 hours to scrape the mixture - but super simple and delicious.
4 tablespoons raw cane sugar
4 tablespoons cold water
1 cup cabernet sauvignon or other dry red wine
1 cup cold water
1 pound frozen mixed berries
1 whole orange, segmented
2/3 cup fresh squeezed orange juice (use bottled if you prefer)
1/8 teaspoon of cinnamon
To make your simple syrup - put your sugar and 4 tablespoons of water into a small pot and bring up to a boil. Stir the liquid to ensure the sugar has dissolved. Cool completely.
Put your wine, 1 cup of water, berries, orange segments, orange juice, simple syrup and cinnamon in a blender. Mix on high for 1 minute until everything is blended really well. Pour the mixture into a bakeware dish like a Pyrex. ( I even poured it into cake pans because I was low on dishes.) Cover with foil or plastic and freeze for 1 hour. Stir the berry mixture with a fork every hour for 5 hours. Store in the freezer until ready to serve.
When you want to serve scrape the mixture with a fork until fluffy.
This dish will stay up to 3 months in the freezer if it is well wrapped.
