Snow can be beautiful to look at but it isn’t something that is enjoyed by everyone. but what if we could give you a way to make it something you look forward to every year? What if we told you, you could make wine slushies out of snow? Sounds crazy but we’re going to tell you how. We used our favorite wine, red wine, in this red wine slushie but you can also use your favorite white wine if you prefer.
First you need to choose your favorite bottle of wine. Whether it’s a sauvignon blanc or a sweet wine like pinot grigio the kind of wine you choose is really up to your preferred taste. A white wine slushie is just as good and actually I prefer white moscato wine while my husband prefers a good red. So grab some wine glasses and let’s get started on this Wine Slushie Recipe.
– 1/2 cup of wine (red or white)
– 1 cup frozen Snow (or enough to fill the cup)
– 1/4 cup diet sprite or 7 up
How to prepare:
1. Pour wine into a 12 oz stainless steel cup or wine glass and pack cup with snow, stir, add snow to the top, stir, and top off with diet Sprite/7-up. Regardless of cup size, mix wine 2 to 1 with diet sprite and fill with snow.

If you’re in an area that doesn’t snow often, or you’re reading this in the middle of Summer. We’re going to also show you how to make this any time of year but you’re going to need to get out your blender.

You literally just throw everything into your kitchen appliance for an easy party drink everyone will love- making it perfect host material or girls night out too.

1 bottle of your favorite sparkling white wine (I use about 2 cups of sparkling white wine)
1/2 cup simple syrup
3 cups of frozen fruit
Just add all of these ingredients to your food processor or high powered blender and blend for a couple of minutes. I love using these freezable wine tumblers.
