Strawberry Sparkling Wine Slushie

I’m always game to try new things, especially new food and drinks, and then I invite friends over to try out my new concoctions because what are friends for, right? It’s a tough job taste testing. They tell you the truth – the good and the bad – and I love that. So recently I invited one of my best girlfriends and her family over for a Saturday night dinner, and on the drink menu were these Strawberry Wine Slushies!

About this drink:

These Strawberry Sparkling Wine Slushies are made with strawberry sparkling wine, crushed ice, pureed fresh strawberries, sugar, lime juice, and tequila (if you want it). They’re fun, fruity and so refreshing! Just picture yourself on a sunny deck in the summer with friends and a strawberry wine slushie in your hands? A perfect cocktail for summer or girls night. Ahhhhhh

Strawberry Wine Slushies Recipe Tips:

  • Sparkling Wine: You can use any of your favourite fruity sparkling wines. Strawberry sparkling wine is particularly delicious. You can also use non-flavoured sparkling wines or even prosecco.
  • Strawberries: I like to use fresh strawberries but you can use frozen as well. If you use frozen strawberries, cut back on the ice.
  • Sweetness: You may need to add more sugar to your slushies, depending on how naturally sweet the strawberries are that you use. Or, instead of adding sugar, try adding this rhubarb simple syrup. YUM!
  • Tequila: Feel free to leave the tequila out if you wish. These are delicious with out it!
  • Glasses: I like to use margarita glasses because we can line the rims with salt and sugar. But you can also use a wine glass and do the same thing.

FAQs

No! Feel free to use any wine. Use white wine like pinot grigio, sauvignon blanc or moscato to make white wine slushies, or try rosé to make a frosé. So many options.

You can make this drink with any kind of fresh or frozen fruit like pineapple, peaches, raspberries, mango, blueberries, blackberries…the flavour possibilities are endless.

Handy tip!

Instead of using ice cubes, you can freeze wine in an ice cube tray instead! Or do half and half. Then top off with more wine.

  1. Favourite summer drink? Whatever you’re making!
    I love a cold crisp beer. And that’s very strange for me to say given how I did not like beer for majority of my life. But in terms of cocktails, definitely something with a lemony orange twist in it. With lots of ice!
