Let’s Gush About Wine Slush!

Even before you take the first sip of a frosty slushy, an instant cool down happens to your psyche. Now, take that same beverage concept, add your favorite wine, and presto! You’ve created what we call a Plush Slush.

It’s a more sophisticated way to help guests keep their cool when you’re entertaining outside or poolside. Added benefit? It keeps their drinks from getting watered down.

Pick out a few of the glacially groovy suggestions below then head to Spec’s and stock up for the next “cold front” happening at your home!
