A REFRESHING SUMMER DESSERT RECIPE

Cheers!

It’s been some time since we’ve had a drink together. This is not a drink, but still. There’s a drink in it.

Since it’s the weekend of the Oscars, I thought this was a great time to share a recipe for one of my favorite, refreshing boozy desserts – White Grape and Champagne Granita. It reminds me of something Hollywood-ish. It’s the Champ in it that gives me the glamorous vibe.

Besides, I realized that I haven’t been the most reasonable this past week – tempting you with Carrot Cake Doughnuts and Coconut Milk Bars. To make up for it, I really should serve you something on the lighter side. Don’t worry, it’s still delish. You won’t even know that all you are eating is flavored ice.

I should mention this: Grapes in February = 6 bucks a pound!? Whaaaat? Bunch of crazies.

Back to the Oscars.

Are those actor-people real? They look too polished. And thin. Have you ever met a well-known actor?

I saw George Clooney once. He was up to my hip. Ok, he was a bit taller than that, but still. I expected a bigger man. Good looking face – I’ll give him that.

I am not a movie watcher. I don’t even know what/who is up for an Oscar, but I will watch it because I’m nosy. Also, I need something to talk about with whomever I run into on Monday. And because I want a reason to eat this entire dessert. Maybe I’ll even put on a long gown and light up a cigarette. 😉

  1. Tom Cruise always comes to mind….he was bigger than life and then when I saw that he was only 5′ 7″… he became more human to me. He’s still a cutie. 🙂 Love this frozen cocktail for the Oscars!! It will make those long speeches almost bearable. 🙂 Have a great weekend. ~ Ramona 🙂

    Kate these pictures look fantastic! You are so good with the camera.
    Oh…..this grape/champ granita is making me salivate. This will go down extremely well with the summer heat we are experiencing Down Under. Good thing I have heaps of grapes at home right now. Gotta make this! 🙂
    By the way……I too feel like I need to dress like “Old Hollywood” while indulging in this cool delight……….mind if I join you! 🙂
