Cooling Off With Wine Slushes
Posted by Madeline Johnson, August 25, 2010 | 0 Comments
It has been one hot Summer. Whether you're on the East Coast or the West, trying to beat the heat has been fleeting, to say the least. Thankfully Kelly Magyarics, wine writer and wine educator, has the perfect solution for staying cool. Wine slushes anyone?
"Frozen wine slushes are hot. An appealing alternative to sangria or a wine spritzer, they are surprisingly refreshing, and retain the wine's character while adding and enhancing its attractive fruit flavors. Thirst quenching, not cloying, wine slushes are the perfect way for wine lovers to indulge their taste this summer while lounging by the pool or relaxing on the deck.
The most inviting wine slushes usually start with a dry, yet fruity white or red wine. (Some smart choices are Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, Rioja, or Merlot.) Add a combination of fruit juice and/or fresh fruit, blend until smooth, and freeze until the desired consistency. (The alcohol in the wine will prevent the mixture from totally freezing solid). For a smoother, quicker result, pour the blended mixture into an electric ice cream maker and process until slushy. Serve in colorful tumblers or Margarita glasses."
