It’s officially spring, and we’re just a step away from garnishing our water bottles with tiny umbrellas if only to pretend we’re on vacation. But, thanks to a few amazing new wine concoctions that have basically taken over Pinterest, pretending just became a little easier.
Prepare to be dazzled by the wine slushie.
The Strawberry Peach Wine Slushie
Make this unbelievably refreshing summer beverage by Dessert for Two a reality with just three ingredients – one bottle of white wine; two peaches, blanched, peeled, sliced and frozen; and two cups of strawberries, sliced and frozen.
Combine the wine and peaches in a blender and puree until the mixture is smooth. If you find that the mix is too liquefied, just place it in the freezer and stir every 30 minutes until the perfect slushy texture forms.
If you have five minutes to spare, then you can make a delicious glass of frozen bubbly peach bellinis for the entire office. This three-ingredient masterpiece calls for three cups of frozen peach slices, one cup of mango nectar, and one 750-ml bottle of chilled Prosecco.
Blend the peach slices and mango nectar until smooth. Pour the fruity mix into champagne flutes until they’re half full. Then fill the glasses with Prosecco and proceed to be the coolest person in the office this Friday.
Frozen Sangria Slushies
If you’re into Sangrias, then you’re going to love this insanely easy-to-make recipe from Baking a Moment.
For this recipe you’ll need 8 ounces of red wine, two ounces of brandy, two ounces of triple sec orange liqueur, three cups of frozen fruit – pineapple, peaches, mixed berries – and a pinch of ground cinnamon. Place all of the ingredients into a blender, puree, and voila!
Blueberry Cream Slush
For a glorious white wine, blueberry, and vanilla ice cream dream, check out this recipe by the Hungry Couple NYC.
This velvety blueberry concoction calls for one-half cup of frozen blueberries, one-half cup of white wine, one-fourth cup of vanilla ice cream, one-half ounce of simple syrup, and four ice cubes.
Combine blueberries, wine, ice cream, and ice cubes in a blender. Blend until smooth, and then add simple syrup. Serve in a chilled wine glass.
Triple Berry Wine Slush
What better way to end the day than with a berry-licious frozen cocktail from the Real Housemoms?
This recipe is designed to serve 10 guests, or, you know, one really stressed out mother of three. All you’ll need is two 12-ounce bags of frozen mixed fruit, one 750ml bottle of red wine, two cups of ginger ale, and two tablespoons of sugar.
Place all of the ingredients into a large blender. Blend until well-mixed, and then pour the mixture into a large freezer-friendly container. Freeze for six hours. Once you’re ready, break up the now frozen mixture with an ice pick or fork. Spoon into wine glasses and enjoy!
