It’s a steamy 90+ degrees here in Napa today which isn’t ideal for enjoying a big glass of Cabernet. Normally a dry rosé or crisp white wine is our thing during a heatwave, but not today! We keep an open mind about interesting food and drink concoctions. So when we learned about these adult slushies you better believe we broke out the blender, grabbed the rest of the Ygrec and some fruit, then went to town making enough to share around the office. Moments later everyone was sliding their Ray-Bans on, propping their flip flops up on desks, and bobbing to Jimmy Buffet’s “Boat Drinks”.
Now that we’re back on dry ground, please indulge in some of the tastiest wine slushie recipes we found.
Strawberry Peach Wine Slushie
Probably one of the best looking concoctions in the list, and the most likely to induce jealousy in your underage children.
Via Hungry Happens
Light, refreshing, and BUBBLY?! Sunday brunch just got even better.
Via Damn Delicious
No need to wait for hours while your fruit and wine infuse together. Just hit the pulse button a few times and you’re good to go.
Via Baking a Moment
Peach & Honey Sangria Smoothie
The ultimate warm weather version of Sangria. They use a Riesling in the recipe, but a vibrant Torrontes or zesty Pinot Grigio might make an ideal substitute.
Via Snappy Gourmet
Riesling Strawberry Slushies
Get some farm fresh strawberries and transport your taste buds to a new dimension.
The addition of Belvoir Elderflower and a sprig of lavender makes this into a fragrant and classy offering.
Via Style Me Pretty
Triple Berry Wine Slush
The recipe calls for a sweet red table wine, but may we suggest a sparkling Lambrusco instead?
Via Real Housemoms
Blueberry Cream Slushie
Frozen blueberries, sweet vanilla ice cream, and a dry Sauvignon Blanc join forces for a tasty spin on the creamcicle.
Pinot Noir Slushie
No fruit? No problem! Just freeze and blend your favorite bottle for this straight up, adulterant-free slushie.
Via Tasty Ever After
Moscato Peach Slushie
The recipe calls for Moscato but we’d try an off-dry Riesling, or even a Gruner for some added zippiness.
Via Divas Can Cook
Homemade Wine Slush Mix
You could buy some “vino slush“, but why not make your own? It’s dead simple.
Raspberry Wine Slushie with Whipped Chocolate Cream
Is it a refreshing cocktail? Decadent dessert? Or maybe both. Talk about next level slushie game!
There you have it. Now it’s your turn to get slushed! Put your own spin on these and we guarantee you’ll be the most popular person at the next neighborhood potluck this summer.
