Making wine slushies makes drinking wine super tasty and way more fun! Why should frosé have all the attention? This frozen treat is amazing!
I have always loved frosé, but I am also a sucker for all things wine. So I decided that this summer, we need a frozen drink that we can easily adapt to what we feel like or have on hand!
There’s just something about a refreshing frozen treat on a hot Summer day, especially with a little something extra mixed in for the adults! Between these slushies and my wine popsicles, this Summer’s poolside libations are next level!
You can technically make these slushies with only 2 ingredients, but here is what I recommend:
- Frozen fruit
- Lemon juice
How To Make Wine Slushies
Making these refreshing wine slushies is just too easy! Here’s what to do:
One of the many great things about these slushies is how versatile they are! You really can’t go wrong with any combination of flavors.
Any wine will work, I like to use sauvignon blanc. White wines will go well with any fruit. Whereas red wines pair better with berries. No matter the varietal, I like to look for healthier wines when I can!
Here are some ideas for what frozen fruit you can use:
Serve with a few whole pieces of fruit on top as a pretty garnish!
Tips and tricks
For the best wine slushies ever, follow these suggestions:
- Make your slushie more tart by adding lemon juice.
- For a sweeter slushie, add sugar.
- You can make each flavor separate and layer them as I have. Or, simply mix it all together!
- Prep in advance! Make extra and freeze in ice cube trays. Then you can let them defrost a little, blend, and enjoy! (You may need to add a little more liquid to recapture the smooth consistency.)
- Pack in a boozy punch! Take a page out of sangria’s book and add a shot of brandy, schnapps, or vodka.
You can quickly freeze any liquid into slushy form by sealing it into a quart sized zip top bag. Then place that bag in a gallon sized zip top bag filled with ice and salt. Shake until frozen!
These slushies however use frozen fruit which won’t break down in the plastic bag method. A food processor can work in place of a blender to blend them up. If you don’t have either, try using fresh fruits juice instead.
Let the frozen wine thaw in your refrigerator until it returns to liquid form.
Yes you can! Just pour your wine into ice cube trays and freeze until solid. Then, transfer the wine ice cubes into an airtight freezer safe container.
Slushies are made by blending ice and liquid. This recipe uses frozen fruit in place of ice cubes, and wine for the liquid.
