Wine SLUSHY Recipes

Use two iconic Northwestern fruits- cherry and peaches and a crisp bottle of rosé to make these fun wine slushy recipes when you need to cool down on a hot summer night.

What is a wine slushy?

I give you two cocktails for the price of one. Frosé or rather- frozen Rosé wine- mixed with either mint infused simple syrup and frozen peaches or cherries. It is bright and sweet without tasting like a dacquiri.

If you do not have time to freeze the Rosé, a well chilled bottle will work fine- the beverage will just not be as slushy.

The mint infusion gives the cocktail even more boldness. Mint cuts through the sugar making this cocktail more enjoyable to drink.

Choose a bold Rosé. You do not want an inexpensive bottle. Ask your local wine merchant for help on this.

How to Make Wine Slushies or Frosé:

Pour your bottle of Rosé in a pan or glass dish in the morning and let it freeze throughout the day. Add a tiny drizzle of grenadine to Rosé- really just for color.

Make a simple syrup and let chill all day as well.

In a blender combine frozen wine, simple syrup and frozen fruit. Garnish with mint or slices of more fruit. Serve in ice cold glasses.
