In Nashville, we’ve been having record setting highs. So basically it’s not even officially summer yet and it feels like the pits of Hades outside. Add no rain for over a week to this heat and its just miserable out there. But one way to stay cool and enjoy a grown up treat is with a little wine slushie! Now if you’ve been following me for any amount of time you know that I love me some wine! One of my favorite sayings is “Everyone needs to believe in something… I believe I’ll have another glass of wine!”
So today I thought I would share a wine slushy recipe. With Summer approaching soon, what better way to enjoy the warm weather than with a nice, cool slushy drink!
This recipe will serve approximately 6 people, but hey if you’re like me, then you won’t want to share!
- 1 bottle of Riesling
- 2 cups hulled strawberries
- 1 tablespoon of fresh lime juice
- 2 tablespoons of sugar
Set aside one cup of Riesling in the fridge to chill. In a food processor, puree strawberries with the remaining wine, lime juice and sugar. Pour the mixture into ice-cube trays and freeze until solid. When you’re ready to serve (or drink), puree the ice cubes with the remaining wine in your blender.
Now how easy is that! I will definitely be making this drink soon! What is your favorite to make? Stay tuned for next week’s edition of Wine Wednesday! I hope you all enjoyed today’s Wine Slushy recipe!
