With the Memorial Day holiday approaching, it's rare to go a day without someone posting a recipe for a favorite treat to cool you down. Nothing could be hotter right now than wine slushies, so we did a taste test to try out these frozen drinks. And we're thrilled that we did. Here are three wine slushies that are yes, both easy to make and incredibly delicious!

Want to try them at home? Read on to find our how you can win a Ninja Professional Blender (valued at over $110) so you can do a taste test of your own!

Berry Rosé Slushy

Just 3 minutes of total preparation time makes this the ideal "summer in a cup" go-to drink. Simply put 1/2 bag of frozen strawberries, 1/2 bag of frozen raspberries, and 3/4 bottle of rosé (chilled) of your choice in a blender. Blend together for 30 seconds or more depending on your desired consistency, and your new favorite cocktail is complete! It's great for a last minute yet sophisticated, refreshing, and easy-to-serve summer drink. Add honey, simple syrup, or sugar depending on your sweet tooth and top it off with a lemon peel garnish or fresh fruit to add a little flair. Impress party guests and enjoy! 


Sparkling Blueberry Slushy

Another fast and fun slushy idea! This time, we blended together ice, frozen blueberries, sparkling water, and Pinot Noir to make an icy summer delight perfect for red wine lovers. Once again, no serious preparation time needed. The added ice in this drink really defined the slushy texture, turning a classic childhood icy treat into a fun adult cocktail. Add sugar as needed and get creative with your frozen fruit choices!



Moscato Peach Slushy

With this recipe, you'll be prepared this summer. Just pour moscato wine (or any wine) into an ice cube tray and freeze. Then, whenever you want a cool drink, just put those grown-up ice cubes into a blender and like magic... a wine slushy! To spruce it up, try adding fruit - either frozen or fresh - to the blender with the ice cubes. If the fruit is at all tart, put in a little sugar as well. We added frozen peaches with sugar, and the results were delicious, like an ice pop for adults! Perfect drink for a hot summer evening.



We were overall impressed with these delicious summer drinks. Ready to try your own? What flavor would it be? Let us know and you can win a Ninja Professional Blender to make it yourself!
