Make mine a slushy, please! A wine slushy, that is. I guarantee you that on a hot afternoon or balmy evening, wine slushies are absolute perfection. They're fantastically refreshing, stretch a modest bit of wine farther, and are chock-full of fruit. They taste like a virtuous fruit smoothie, but with a bit of a naughty edge … which is my idea of summertime nirvana. If you have peak-season fruit from the farmers' market, freeze it on a baking sheet until firm. Or just start with frozen fruit from the grocery store. Either way, you'll be staying cool, deliciously.
STRAWBERRY-ROSÉ WINE SLUSHIESSomehow, the blush of rosé wine and the sweet blush of strawberries are meant to be together. I prefer this with no added sweetener, but my friends say it tastes best with the added honey; if you like things on the less-sweet side, try it with no or less honey.
