The drink of the summer is definitely the fruit and wine slushie. I had to try it out for myself, so today I am sharing with you my Strawberry Rosé Slush. This marks drink seven in my eight week Summer Happy Hour Series, where I bring you drink recipes using fresh fruits. You will love this recipe because it is simple and only requires three ingredients. You’ll be sipping on slushies in no time.
- One 750 ml bottle of Rosé (or any favorite wine)
- Frozen strawberries
I found frozen sliced strawberries in the freezer aisle at the grocery store, which fit the bill perfectly. If you can’t find them frozen, or prefer to use fresh you are welcome to do so! Simply clean and slice your strawberries (halves or quarters are fine), then place them on a parchment lined baking sheet. Freeze for two hours, then store them in a freezer bag until ready to use.
I must confess, I do not know much about wine. I have found a few that I enjoy, but I am by no means a professional! That’s one of the many reasons I created this blog. I can learn more about food and experiment with new flavors. Today I shall experiment with something new: rosé!
With no knowledge of wine and google by my side, I picked out some Chloe Rosé. With delicate notes of strawberries, raspberries, and watermelon, I thought it would be a great fit for my strawberry slush. I’d say that if you have a personal favorite, go with it. It’s important that you choose a wine you enjoy.
Doesn’t that frosty glass have you feeling refreshed already? What other fruit/wine combinations have you tried, and what is your favorite so far? Personally I’m loving the Strawberry Rosé Slush :)
- 16 ounces strawberries frozen
- 1 and 1/2 cups ice
- 1 750 ml bottle Rosé or your favorite wine
Place all ingredients in a blender (or make two half batches if needed).
Blend on high speed until well combined and no chunks remain.
Pour into glasses and serve immediately. Enjoy.
