Slushy Sippers: Mango-Champagne Wine Slushies

May 31, 2016 | By | Comments (1)

Make mine a slushy, please! A wine slushy, that is. I guarantee you that on a hot afternoon or balmy evening, wine slushies are absolute perfection. They’re fantastically refreshing, stretch a modest bit of wine farther, and are chock-full of fruit. They taste like a virtuous fruit smoothie, but with a bit of a naughty edge … which is my idea of summertime nirvana. If you have peak-season fruit from the farmers’ market, freeze it on a baking sheet until firm. Or just start with frozen fruit from the grocery store. Either way, you’ll be staying cool, deliciously.

MANGO-CHAMPAGNE WINE SLUSHIES
Gorgeously sweet tropical mangoes and effervescent sparkling wine make an irresistible match. You can also use a “still” wine, such as sauvignon blanc or unoaked chardonnay. If the mango was frozen when good and ripe, you shouldn’t need any sweetener; add a little honey, though, if it’s not sweet enough for you.

3 cups frozen cubed mango
2 cups champagne, prosecco, or cava, chilled
1 cup ice cubes

1. Place all ingredients in a blender; process until smooth.
