Happy August everyone! For my fellow wine lovers we are in the thick of wine slushie season! Aren’t wine slushies your favorite kind of slushie? And sauvignon blanc is my favorite white wine, so I’ve put together a fun list for your summer wine slushie inspiration. Here are 3 Wine Slushie Recipes using Sauvignon Blanc!
Strawberry Peach Wine Slushie
1 bottle of Sauvignon Blanc white wine (You can get amazing bottles for less than $20 at Club W. Click here and get $20 off your first order! Take a quick palate quiz and you’ll be on your way!)
2 peaches, blanched, peeled, sliced & frozen
2 cups strawberries, sliced & frozen
In a blender, combine the 2 cups wine and the peaches. Puree until smooth. Pour mixture in a medium bowl.
Add the strawberries and remaining wine to the blender and puree until smooth.
If the mixtures are too liquidy, place them in the freezer until they “slush up” – mixing them every 15 minutes.
You can make these in advance and defrost for 15 minutes at room temp. before serving.
Yields 4 slushies.

Lemon Honey Granita
6 Tbsp. honey
1 bottle Sauvignon Blanc Find your perfect white. – Explore Now
Grated lemon zest and juice from 1 lemon
Edible flowers for garnish (optional)
In a saucepan, stir together honey and 1 1/2 cups water. Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce to a simmer, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until honey has completely dissolved. Once the mixture has returned to a boil, remove from heat and let cool. When the mixture has cooled completely, stir in Sauternes and lemon zest and juice.
Pour mixture into a shallow freezer-safe container. Freeze for about 1 hour, then, using a fork, scrape and stir to break up ice crystals. Return granita to freezer until firm, 8 to 12 hours, occasionally scraping and stirring with a fork.
To serve, spoon granita into small chilled glasses or bowls and serve at once. Garnish with edible flowers, if using. Serves 6 to 8.
