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 sure to stay cool, deliciously.
If you go with sweet riesling (or other sweet wine) for this fruity sipper, you shouldn’t need any additional sweetener.
3 cups frozen raspberries
2 cups sweet riesling or other sweet white wine (such as muscat or muscat or moscato), chilled
1 cup ice cubes
1. Place all ingredients in a blender; process until smooth. No need to strain—enjoy those raspberry seeds (more fiber!).
