Ingredients
  • 425g granulated sugar
  • 1 bottle dry prosecco (or dry cava or Champagne, if preferred), chilled
  • Lemon zest, to decorate
Method
  • Set the freezer to its lowest setting. Put the sugar in a pan with 600ml water. Heat slowly, stirring, until the sugar has dissolved. Bring to the boil and simmer fast, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Pour into a bowl to cool.

  • Put in a plastic, lidded box and leave in the freezer until frozen around the edges; this should take 3-4 hours. Stir with a fork and freeze for another 2 hours. Stir, then add the wine.

  • Return to the freezer and leave for 36 hours or until it resembles crushed ice. Stir well and serve decorated with lemon zest.
