Riesling Strawberry Slushies Print Recipe Print Recipe

I’m fully aware that it’s not summer, but when it’s 80 degrees and strawberries are still front and center at Whole Foods, I’m left with no choice. It’s popsicles,  ice coffee and these, Riesling strawberry slushies.

Forget the straw, give me a spoon.

a BIG spoon.

If you’ve already moved right into Fall, it’s okay. There’s no rules for when you can or cannot enjoy an alcoholic drink, if you ask me. You can always replace this with frozen strawberries, or berries of choice. I bet this could be good with watermelon or honeydew.

 

How perfect would these be for a baby or bridal shower??

Not only is this eat-straight-out-of-the-bowl worthy, but it’s SUPER duper easy! I’m practically in love with everything about this drink.

    Is it a cup of Riesling or what’s left in the bottle?

    When you open the bottle, save 1 cup – put it in the fridge. Use the remaining, whats left in the bottle and blend with the other ingredients. Then at the end you’ll use the remaining 1 cup in the ridge – does that help?

    No need to pour into trays.  You can freeze it in a shallow tuperware container and spoon into a wine glass for a wine slushy.

    Looks awesome, cooling…my new summer drink!

  • Wade

    can this be done with a Taylor Slushy machine I wonder?

  • furpurr

    For a bridal shower, yes, definitely!! But for a baby shower?! NO!! Because the pregnant lady should NOT be drinking any alcohol, & how rude would it be to serve these to everyone BUT her?!?

  • WithStyleGrace

    I guess it depends on the person, but we served everyone at my baby shower champagne and wine.
