Total Time3 hrs 5 mins
Course: Dessert
Servings: 4


  • 2 c. Merlot or other full-bodied red wine
  • 1 c. water
  • 3/4 c. white sugar
  • 1/2 c. fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 c. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lime juice


  • In a saucepan, heat wine, water, and sugar to boiling over medium heat. Boil and stir one minute, until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and stir in fruit juices. Let cool.
  • Pour mixture into an 9 x 13 baking pan (metal works better than glass for optimal freezing). Place the pan in the freezer. Remove after 30 minutes to scrape and stir the mixture with a fork so that flaky ice crystals form. Repeat every 30 minutes until frozen to your liking.
  • To serve, scrape with a fork into individual bowls and serve immediately.
