As the temps continue to rise and show no signs of dropping, we’re looking for every way to stay cool this summer. As you know, we’re big fans of light and refreshing wines, so this month we’re taking our favorites and turning them into frozen wine slushies! Mix up your drink routine with one of these frozen cocktails and a few perfect bottles for blending.
Get your blender ready for this simple two-ingredient cocktail from The Forked Spoon! With only frozen peaches and wine of your choice, it really doesn’t get easier than this. We recommend the Josh Cellars Prosecco ($14) for a refreshing effervescent fizz!
Frosé has become a summer classic. One of Tanji’s personal favorites, this rosey wine is so refreshing when blended with strawberries, lemon juice and a touch of sugar. Follow this recipe from Bon Appétit and try it with the Stella Rosa Ruby Rosé Grapefruit ($14) for an added touch of fragrant grapefruit juice.
Freeze a bushel of your juicy end-of-season blackberries for this cooling drink from The View From Great Island. Simply wash and dry your fruit and pop them in the freezer for an hour or two until they’re frozen solid, then blend! We suggest you use the Don Simon Floral Sangria ($10) – the dark blackberry goes so well with the rich fruit and spice notes of this red wine sangria.
