Usually, slushies are something enjoyed by kids on a hot summer’s afternoon. But what about the adults? Well, this strawberry peach wine slushie recipe is just for you. It’s a quick and refreshing cocktail recipe perfect for summer. The texture is typical of that you’d expect in a slushie, but the fruity flavors are mixed with wine to give a refreshing, yet delicious drink. It’s also easy to modify the sweetness to your taste. And you literally need only four ingredients: peaches, strawberries, wine, and ice cubes. That’s it. Four ingredients and a few minutes away to your new favorite drink!
A slushy was invented in the USA in the 1950s, and is a beverage made from flavored crushed iced. The slushy can either be flavored with something like soda, or with fresh fruits. Usually it’s a non-alcoholic drink, but for this recipe, we changed it up a bit!
The Strawberry Peach Wine Slushy uses only four ingredients, so you want to make sure that it’s the best quality you can get. Use fresh peaches and strawberries, making sure that they’re completely ripened. If not, they won’t be as sweet. If you find that the slushie is not sweet enough, you can add a but of honey or sugar.
If you like a stronger wine, use a Sauvignon Blanc. If you want something sweeter, then use a sweeter wine like a Muscat.
– This recipe is best when made with a blender or a food processor. If you don’t have one, you can use a Ziploc bag. Simply add your ingredients to the bag, close, and pound with a meat mallet or rolling pin until smooth. Alternatively, you can use a slushie machine.
– For a non-alcoholic version, use a soda (like lemonade) or sparkling water instead of the wine.
– For a creamier slushie, use a bit of coconut milk.
These Strawberry Peach Wine Slushies are best served immediately! They’re so easy to make, that you don’t even need to make them ahead of time. If you want to do some prep work, why not chop up your fruits and store them in the fridge until you’re ready to use them.
Make the two batches separately. Add the fruit in the blender with the ice and blend until smooth.
Pour the strawberry slushie mixture into a container and freeze for 1-2 hours.
Repeat the process with the peaches and freeze for 1-2 hours.
Scrape the frozen slushie mixture to form ice crystals and layer into a glass.
Put slash in a glass, mixing colors and enjoy!
The amount of wine you add might depend on your preferences. Start with a small amount and then increase your taste. When using a sweet wine, you might find that you can add a little more without it being too overpowering.
