Combine 2/3 cup water and 2/3 cup sugar in small saucepan. Bring to boil, stirring until sugar dissolves. Boil 1 minute. Cool syrup. Stir in lemon juice.
Puree green grapes and half of lemon syrup in blender (some bits of grape peel will remain).
Transfer to 13x9x2-inch metal pan. Puree red grapes and remaining lemon syrup in blender.
Transfer to another 13x9x2-inch metal pan. Freeze 1 hour. Stir with fork every hour until frozen, about 4 hours.
Meanwhile, dip grape clusters into 2 tablespoons Muscat wine to moisten, then dip grapes into sugar to coat.
Place grapes on small tray and freeze until frozen, about 4 hours. (Granitas and grapes can be made 1 day ahead. Cover separately and keep frozen.)
Using fork, scrape granitas down length of pan, forming icy flakes.
Pour 2 tablespoons Muscat wine into each of 6 wide glasses. Divide green grape granita equally among glasses. Spoon red grape granita alongside green grape granita in each glass.
Garnish each with sugared grape cluster and serve.
Wine Pairing :
- cream sherry
- moscato dasti
Cream Sherry, Moscato d'Asti, and Port are my top picks for Granita. A common wine pairing rule is to make sure your wine is sweeter than your food. Delicate desserts go well with Moscato d'Asti, nutty desserts with cream sherry, and caramel or chocolate desserts pair well with port.
