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!
1 cup cubed watermelon
½ bottle Moscato
Mint sprig for garnish
Place watermelon, wine and ice into a blender. Process until slushy. Garnish with a mint sprig. Enjoy!
Sangria Slush – serves 2
8 oz red wine
2 oz brandy
2 oz orange liqueur
3 cups frozen fruit
Pinch of ground cinnamon
Place all the ingredients in a blender, puree, and pour into glasses.
Berry Peachy Slushy – serves 4
1 bottle Sauvignon Blanc
2 peaches, blanched, peeled, sliced & frozen
1 cup strawberries, sliced & frozen
Lime wheels for garnish
Add 2 cups of wine and frozen peach slices into a blender. Puree until smooth and pour into a medium bowl. Add strawberries and remaining wine to the blender and puree until slushy.
