Slushy Sippers: Raspberry-Riesling Wine Slushies

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 […]
