Strawberry and Riesling Slushie

There’s no better combination than wine and a sweet treat! AND it’s even better on a hot summer day. These aren’t your regular slushies though, as they combine dry white wine with strawberries – not for the little ones!

Cherry-Lime Cocktail

Who doesn’t love a pink cocktail? Especially when it comes with a fruit skewer. DUH. I spent my entire day on the hunt for a new apartment and when I finally made it home, I was craving nothing but an ice cold refreshing cocktail. Although I made it off the top of my head, this one definitely did the trick.

Ingredients:
-1 tsp grenadine syrup
-Ice
-1 shot Bacardi Cherry Rum
-1 large lime (juice)
-Sprite

Put the grenadine in a glass and then add your ice. Pour in a shot of cherry rum, the juice of one lime and then top off with sprite. Stir everything till well-mixed and enjoy!

The fruit skewer is an optional garnish, but I opted out of using cherries for it because I didn’t want an overload of cherry flavor. Berries worked just fine.

As sweet as this drink is, it’s also really refreshing. The combination of flavors is great and I hope you try it out for yourselves!

Strawberry and Riesling Summer Slushy

slushy

There’s no better combination than wine and a sweet treat! AND it’s even better on a hot summer day. These aren’t your regular slushies though, as they combine dry white wine with strawberries – not for the little ones!  I made this after a day of walking around New York city and it was far more refreshing than I could have ever imagined. I’m thinking of making this for my summer rooftop brunch, but rooftop + sunshine might not bid too well for the slushies wellbeing. Also I’m in a constant debate with myself whether to say ‘slushy’ or ‘slushie’ – any ideas on which is actually correct?

What you need:

5-6 pitted and washed strawberries

1 cup riesling

2 cups ice

And all you need to do is blend blend blend! If you would like to save some of this for later, a good way to store it is to pour the slushy/ie mix into an ice tray and re-blend when you’re ready.

This is an easy one so get to blending! I hope you guys enjoy 🙂

Stay cool,
