Full of juicy seasonal fruit and your favorite wine, these wine slushies are so much fun for a grown-up summer drink. They are refreshing and will keep you cool when the weather is hot. These are so easy to make and look absolutely gorgeous in the wine glasses that you will be eager to blend up a batch.

WINE SLUSHIES INGREDIENTS

You will need:

For the Slushie

  • 1 (750 milliliters) bottle Sweet White Wine (Riesling or Moscato), divided and chilled 
  • 2 cups frozen strawberries
  • 2 cups frozen pineapple
  • 2 cups ice cubes, divided
  • Fresh strawberry or pineapple slice for garnish, optional

For the Simple Syrup

  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup water

Pro Tip: If you have fresh fruit in season that you want to use, you only need to rinse/peel your fresh fruit, cut it into 1-inch pieces, and then spread it out in an even layer on a parchment-lined sheet tray and place it in your freezer for about 2 hours. Once frozen, you can place the frozen fruit into a freezer-safe ziplock bag and store it in your freezer for up to 3 months or until ready to use.

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

Fruit: You can make any fruit-flavoured white wine slushie of your choice. Replace the strawberries and pineapple with your favorite frozen fruit, and follow the other ingredients and directions as listed. We highly recommend using fruits like berries, stone fruits like peaches, mangos & cherries (that have been pitted and peeled) or pineapple chunks. These fruits blend up the best. Some delicious fruit combinations are raspberry/peach, mixed berry/mango and blackberry/strawberry.

Ice Cubes: Freeze orange juice (or your favorite juice) in ice cube trays and use it in place of the regular ice cubes.

HOW TO MAKE THIS WINE SLUSHIES RECIPE

PRO TIP: If you are serving this for guests, you can make as many fruit flavor choices as you would like and allow party guests to create their own favorite fruit combinations.

STEP ONE: Make the simple syrup by heating ½ cup water in a microwave-safe bowl (a glass measuring cup with a spout works great) for 1 minute. Remove the bowl from the microwave and add ½ cup of sugar and stir to dissolve the sugar. Set aside and allow to cool while you gather your remaining ingredients.

PRO TIP: If you are using a dryer white wine, like a Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc, we would suggest that you increase the amount of simple syrup to ½ cup per flavor blend. That would mean doubling your Simple Syrup recipe.

STEP TWO: In the container of your blender add 1 cup chilled white wine, 2 cups frozen strawberries, 1 cup ice, and ¼ cup simple syrup.

STEP THREE: Blend on high (or the smoothie setting if you have it on your blender) for 2 minutes or until smooth, and no chunks of fruit or ice remains.

STEP FOUR: Pour your slushie into a pitcher, or large glass jar, rinse out your blender container and repeat with your second fruit flavor. Combine the frozen pineapple, wine, ice and simple syrup until smooth.

STEP FIVE: In the bottom half of a wine glass, spoon ½ cup of your strawberry slushie, then top that by spooning a ½ cup of pineapple slushie on top. You can garnish your glass with a piece of fresh pineapple and a fresh strawberry.

HOW TO SERVE

STORAGE

IN THE FREEZER: You can store any extra homemade wine slushie in freezer-safe lidded jars for up to 2 weeks.

MAKE-AHEAD: You can make these white wine slushies ahead of time and store them in your freezer until your party time. When you are ready to serve, remove the slushies from your freezer and allow them to thaw on your countertop for 5-10 minutes.
