Berry Wine Slushies – A refreshing blend of frozen berries and wine results in the hottest cool drink of the summer!
Friends! Let’s get this summer party started with a bottle of wine and frozen berries blended to a slushy deliciousness!
This time of year, we can’t get enough of summer fruits and frozen drinks, thus when it comes to cocktails, you pretty much can’t go wrong with a wine slushy. For the kids and the anti-wine crowd, I like to whip up a batch of Blueberry Kiwi Slushies.
A boozy slushy is probably one of the easiest drinks to make because it only involves 2 main ingredients + ice cubes.
INGREDIENTS FOR WINE SLUSHIES
- frozen berries
- your pick: Chardonnay, Moscato, Riesling, Prosecco, or Rosè
Sidenote: think about all the antioxidants up in those berries! AND, according to studies, wine is really really good for you… so… SCORE! (I hope that good-for-you-wine includes Rosé)
HOW TO MAKE WINE SLUSHIES
- Combine frozen berries and wine in a blender and process until completely blended.
- Add ice and continue to “blend” until mixture is slushy.
- Because not all blenders come in one size, I recommend to blend the wine and berries together, first, and then pour out half of that mixture in a separate cup and set aside.
- Add a cup of ice cubes to the mixture that’s still in the blender and process until slushy. Pour that out into prepared wine glasses and repeat the process with the rest of the berries/wine mixture.
- Serve in chilled wine glasses.
You can also add a shot of raspberry liqueur, like Chambord, or a shot of orange liqueur. YUM!
