Remember those Peach Moscato Cupcakes from the other day? Well, we’re back at it today with the peach moscato – this time we’re putting it into Strawberry Peach Wine Slushies. I repeat, Strawberry Peach Wine Slushies. This is not a drill, people! These drinks are refreshing, with just the right amount of sweetness, and they’re perfect for any summer gathering – or just an afternoon on your patio!
Strawberry Peach Wine Slushie Basics:
The idea behind these is so simple yet so incredibly effective. Let’s look at the ingredient lineup:
- Frozen peach slices
- Frozen strawberries
Um, yep. That’s about it. Blend those 4 star ingredients up and you’re done! Like I said – mind-blowingly simple, but SO incredibly good. This is the epitome of low-input but high-output recipes. In other words, we are putting in minimal effort and ingredients here but getting an AMAZING outcome.
I’m not really one to sip on a cocktail or enjoy a glass of wine, like, ever. So, if I’m raving about these wine slushies, you best believe they’re good! Peach Moscato is the only wine I’ve ever actually liked, and it’s perfect when paired with frozen fruit! (Below is a photo of the moscato we used – we found it at Trader Joe’s! This is not sponsored – we just love this moscato!)
Getting Fancy with your Wine Slushies
After I made these, Grant and I sat outside on our little balcony and sipped on wine slushies – and lemme tell you – we felt REAL fancy. I think the sugared rims helped with that. It’s an optional step that can sweeten your drink a bit and it also makes for gorgeous presentation! It’s a little trick I’m so fond of because its easy but makes you seem super fancy – your friends and fam will start calling you Martha Stewart.
To decorate the rims, just pour some sugar into a shallow bowl, and pour some corn syrup into another shallow bowl (or dish). Dip the rim of the glass into the corn syrup, then twist and lift and move over to the sugar dish. Repeat. And there ya have your sugared rims!
I like cane sugar here because of the slightly bigger granules – it won’t just dissolve into the corn syrup and become undetectable.
If it’s a really hot day, you can pop the glasses into the freezer for a few minutes to solidify the corn syrup and prevent it from running down the sides of the glass.
Since we’re on the fast train to fancy summer days, we might as well add a peach slice to the rim to further amp up the wow factor! Being an adult is kinda fun, sometimes! Especially when you have a wine slushie on hand.
If you want to make these drinks kid-friendly, just swap the moscato for Sprite!
Let’s all agree to slow down, make these wine slushies, and enjoy the last few weeks of summer. Cheers!
