Sangria Slushies

I am all about fun summer cocktails.  Is there anything more relaxing than sitting on the back porch, watching the sun set, and sipping a cocktail?  I already think of sangria as a summery drink, but when it's in slushy form?  And full of strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries? Epitome of a summer drink, right here.  The berries, wine, liqueur, and juice are blended, then the mixture is frozen using your ice cream maker - such a revelation!  I'm already imagining the endless possibilities of adult slushies - rum and cherry coke anyone?

Feel free to play around with the fruits and flavor profiles here - I think a peach and white wine version would be absolutely delicious!

After the scary thunderstorms we had last night, we're gearing up for an absolutely gorgeous weekend here in Atlanta - I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend, and Happy Father's Day to all the dads, grandpas, and father-figures out there!

Mixed Berry Sangria Slushies
method inspired by Annie's Eats and Bon Appetit

  • 1 (750-mL) bottle red wine (I used Pinot Noir)
  • 1/4 cup chambord, or other raspberry liqueur
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 2 cups mixed berries
  • 1 Tbs sugar
Combine all the ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth.  Transfer to an ice cream maker and churn until a "slushy" consistency is reached.  Divide among serving glasses and drink immediately!

I am a HUGE sangria lover and I think these slushies are going to become a summer staple for me!
