Although as a kid I always chose ice cream over slushies, and as an adult I always choose margaritas on the rocks over the frozen variety, I’m currently crushing hard on wine slushies. A boozy fruity treat that cools you off and is super fun to drink… what’s not to love?!
I started off with my current favorite rosé wine, which is dry (I’m not a fan of sweet wines) and moderately priced. Feel free to use whatever rosé you prefer.
To the chilled wine, I added some frozen blueberries and a couple of these frozen pitaya dragon fruit packs. If you’ve never heard about, seen, or tried dragon fruit, let this recipe be your reason to do so! Naturally a vibrant hot pink color, and delicious without being cloyingly sweet, dragon fruit is a great addition to smoothies, and – as it turns out – wine slushies.
Blend up the three ingredients, and you’re rewarded with this gorgeous beverage:
Happy unofficial start to summer!
