What you’ll need for this refreshing Mixed Berry-Lemonade Wine Slushy

  • Frozen mixed berries: The berries adds a beautiful light sweetness to this drink and rich, vibrant colors
  • Wine: Moscato is my favorite wine, so that’s what I used for this recipe. You are welcome to use prosecco, Riesling, chardonnay or any white wine of your choice.
  • Lemonade: Lemonade adds a lovely citrus note and makes the drink extra refreshing.
  • Ice: Ice is optional and I recommend adding it a little bit at time in order to get your preferred slushy consistency.
  • Sugar: If you have a sweet tooth, then feel free to a touch of sugar to the slushy.

Fun variation of this drink

If you want to make this drink as show in the photo, then you’ll need to do the following:

  • Separate the berries by color. For the drink, I used a mix of blueberries, strawberries and cherries, so the I put the blueberries in one pile and the strawberries and cherries in another pile.
  • You’ll essentially be making two different slushies; one red slushy and one blue-ish slushy. Blend the red berries together with the lemonade, wine and ice, rinse the blender, then follow the same steps for the blueberries.
  • Decide on which color you would prefer to have on top. Pour the bottom color first. Next, take a spoon and slowly pour the second drink on top of the first drink to create layers.

Non-Alcoholic Drink

Feel free to omit the wine and use only lemonade. The drink will still be just as delicious and refreshing. It’ll be great for your kids to enjoy and for guests who prefer not to have an alcoholic drink. It’s a tasty alternative for everyone!

  • Author: Samantha – Pastry & Soul
  • Total Time: 10 minutes

Description

A refreshing blend of berries, lemonade and wine. This is a quick recipe that’s perfect for a hot summer day!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 cups frozen mixed berries (I used a blueberry, strawberry and cherry mix)
  • 1 cup wine, chilled (moscato was used for this recipe)
  • 1 cup lemonade
  • handful of ice cubes (optional, you can use all berries)
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar, to taste (optional)
  • berries, optional garnish
  • lemon slices, optional garnish

Instructions

  1. Pour the berries, lemonade, ice cubes, and wine into a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Once the ingredients are blended, taste and add additional ingredients to your preference. Add more wine or lemonade to thin out the slushy or add more berries or ice to thicken the drink. Add the sugar if you prefer a sweeter drink.
  3. Serve immediately while cold and enjoy!

Notes

  • Add berries and ice a little bit at a time. A powerful blender will help to smoothly blend the drink.
  • If you’re not drinking the slushy right away, then be sure to store it in the refrigerator until you’re ready to enjoy.
  • I recommend serving this drink within 30 minutes to 1 hour.

What you’ll need to make a Blueberry and Blood Orange Margarita

  • Blueberries: The blueberry flavor comes from the muddled blueberries.
  • Silver tequila: I recommend using silver tequila rather than gold tequila for this recipe because the flavor doesn’t compete with the fruity flavors of the margarita.
  • Orange liqueur: I used Triple Sec for this recipe, but feel free to use Grand Marnier or Cointreau. They all work perfectly for this recipe.
  • Lime juice: What’s a margarita without some fresh lime juice? The lime juice adds some needed acidity to cut the sweetness.
  • Simple syrup: Homemade blueberry simple syrup was used for this recipe which added some additional blueberry flavor. You are welcome to use plain simply syrup (homemade or store bought).
  • Carbonated blood orange drink: The carbonated blood orange drink makes this margarita extra special. I used San Pellegrino blood orange sparkling drink for this recipe.
  • Garnishes: The addition of a vibrant red blood orange slice, a slice of lime, and blueberries really make the final presentation of this drink pop!
  • Ice: This margarita is on the rocks and the drink definitely tastes better ice cold!
  • Salt and Sugar: You can line the rim of your glass with salt or sugar or omit the both of them completely.
