Inside: Red wine slushies recipe.
Ever since I made Strawberry and Peach Wine Slushies a few months ago, I have been on such a kick with the different flavor combinations! They are SO absurdly easy to make that it’s almost embarrassing to call it a recipe, but they taste delicious! And, of course, I’m a sucker for anything that’s themed for the holidays. These red wine slushies are perfect for Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day and everything in between!
Just look at those gorgeous layers!!
Plus, I love how these red wine slushies can be made ahead. I have containers in my freezer right now with raspberry wine slush, blueberry wine slush and more. When it’s time for your picnic, just take out what you need and assemble them.
This takes care of your dessert and adult drinks all in one shot! Just be sure to make it very clear that these are adult beverages! Trust me, they are so pretty and look so good that you’ll want to make sure everyone is aware there is wine in these!
How to make Red Wine Slushies
Just start with the frozen fruit and wine of your choice. I like a nice sweet wine, so I went with Moscato this time. And, of course, the raspberries and blueberries to lend to my patriotic theme!
And take a look at my dinosaur-age blender! No fancy appliances are needed! I have the same $20 blender that we’ve been using for an over a decade now and it does the job just fine!
When your first layer is sufficiently blended, just spoon it into your glasses. Then I tap the glass lightly to get it to settle into a nice, even layer. You can see the back 2 glasses in the picture below have been evened out, but I still need to tap the front one to get it to lay evenly.
The white, middle layer is nothing but ice and wine! I don’t even bother wiping my blender pitcher out in between layers. I just rinse it out and keep going!
Just use your spoon to gently even out the layers as you add them. If you’re a bit of a slow worker, feel free to put your glasses in the freezer in between layers. It helps keep the red wine slushies layers more even so they aren’t melting and blending together as you work.
So easy and so yummy!!
Red Wine Slushies Recipe
- 2 1/4 cups white wine divided (I used Moscato)
- 2.5 cups frozen raspberries
- 2.5 cups frozen blueberries
- 2.5 cups ice
In your blender, combine raspberries with 3/4 cup wine until slushy consistency. Pour into 3 glasses.
Rinse out blender. Then add ice and 3/4 cup wine and blend until smooth. Carefully add to 3 glasses and spread into even layer over the raspberry layer.
Add blueberries and remaining 3/4 cup wine to blender. Blend and then add to glasses.
