Frozen Wine Slushies


If you are looking for a refreshing drink this summer, I have found it!  My mother-in-law found a wine slushie mix while she was in Amish Country last week.  So of course I had to find a way to make one without worrying about having to find the mix :)




After doing some research on line I found a recipe that I slightly adapted.  The wine slushies were easy to make but hard to wait on them to get frozen :)


This 4th of July weekend I also made another frozen treat.... Cally's favorite Ice Cream......... Cookies-n-Cream!  The chocolate Oreo's were still crunchy and oh so good!


Cally was also in a Wedding.  Bill and I attended Laura and Andrew's wedding.  Everything was absolutely beautiful!  These are Cally's best friends Janie, Laura and Nikki


Cally caught the bouquet............

Cally made the wedding cake.  Laura chose a Naked Cake


Cally also made all the cupcakes.  She made White Cupcakes with strawberries on top and Carrot Cake Cupcakes.  The were awesome!!


I actually ran out of time to have my frozen slushies the night I made them.  Bill was called out after hours for work so I thought I would surprise him when he got home.  However after 3 hours in the freezer my slushies were not frozen enough.  I left them in the freezer overnight and by morning they were frozen solid.  I put them in the refrigerator while we attended a car show and 8 hours later they were perfect!


Since I mentioned the car show.... Here is the morning of the 4th and we were giving the car a bath for the show in Urbana later that morning.... 640 cars were at this show!


Here is a picture while we were at the show.  It was a beautiful 4th of July day!


Frozen Wine Slushies

1 bottle of wine ( I used White Zinfandel )
1 wine bottle of water
1 1/2 teaspoons Citric Acid
1 3/4 cups sugar  (less if using a sweet wine)

Put sugar and Citric Acid in a food processor or I used my Ninja blender and pulse until the sugar is powdery.  

Pour wine into a plastic container.  

Pour a full wine bottle of water into the plastic container.

Pour the sugar/citric acid mixture into the plastic container and stir to mix up.

Put the wine mixture into the freezer for about 6 hours or until frozen to desired consistency.  You may also freeze overnight and then place in the refrigerator for 8 hours to thaw to the slushie consistency.

  4. To your surprise, you can not locate the vineyard. The wine you're enthusiastic about might also additionally have come from an achieved winemaker who offered bulk wines from which he blended/bottled/classified that new preferred wine you simply discovered. Wine importers
