Fruity Lemonade Rose Slushies

July 17, 2020 by Nicole Collins

It's cocktail time!

You guys remember when all of this quarantine business started how I told you about that time I was desperate for a beer and ended up ordering 6 cases to meet the delivery minimum? And, remember how I told you that it would take me years to get through all of that beer, because I'm not really one to drink by myself at home?

Well...it's amazing what 4 months stuck in the house with nothing to do but eat, drink, and Netflix can do to an otherwise usually responsible and water drinking person. Because, I'm almost halfway through those 6 cases of beer.

And thankfully, about 30 beers in 4 months is really not an alarming figure. But, it's way more than I'd ever drink by myself under normal circumstances. But, such is life in quarantine.

When I ordered those 6 cases of beer back in March, I also ordered one bottle of sparkling rose to push me right over the delivery minimum hump. And, that's what we're using to make today's recipe. So today, we're making Fruity Lemonade Rose Slushies!

This is actually a 2 for the price of 1 kind of recipe today. I couldn't decide which version of the slushie I liked better, so I'm sharing the recipes for both today!

Let's start with the Strawberry Lemonade Rose Slushie. This delicious drink comes together in just 3 ingredients. We need some frozen strawberries, some store bought lemonade, and some chilled regular or sparkling rose wine. Toss everything into a blender, push the button, and drink number one is ready!

Our second drink is a Watermelon Mint Lemonade Slushie, and this drink clocks in at only 4 ingredients. Just like with our strawberry slushie, we're going to take some frozen watermelon chunks, a handful of mint leaves, some store bought lemonade, and some more chilled rose; throw it all in a blender. Mix, and done!

Using frozen fruit in our slushies helps us to get that thick icy texture without having to add ice to the drink. That way, we don't risk watering down our cocktails. And, my biggest issue with frozen cocktails is that they're usually way too sweet. But, since we're basically only relying on the natural sweetness of the fruit, these drinks are not unbearably sweet at all. They have more of a refreshing tartness to them with a subtle sweetness making them the perfect summertime drink.

These drinks can be easily doubled or tripled to make a pitcher of one flavor or another, and all you need to pretty these up is some freshly sliced fruit. Don't you just love it when you can make something delicious and beautiful with no effort at all?

Ok, everyone! It's been a while since we've raised a glass together. So, let me remind you to please drink responsibly. These go down pretty smooth, and I don't need to see videos of you guys on the internet dancing on tables after a few of these! I hope you enjoy! And, let's drink!

Fruity Lemonade Rose Slushies

Serves: 2 drinks per flavor Print

Ingredients:

For the Strawberry Lemonade Slushie:

  • 1 ½ cups strawberries, frozen

  • ½ cup lemonade

  • 1 cup rose wine (I used sparkling)

For the Watermelon Mint Lemonade Slushie:

  • 1 ½ cups watermelon chunks, frozen

  • 6 mint leaves

  • ½ cup lemonade

  • 1 cup rose wine (I used sparkling)

Directions:

  1. Make the Strawberry Lemonade Slushies: To a blender, add strawberries, lemonade, and wine. Blend until smooth. Serve!

  2. Make the Watermelon Mint Lemonade Slushies: To a blender, add watermelon, mint, lemonade, and wine. Blend until smooth. Serve!

Recipe notes:

*Please drink responsibly!

*Freezing the fruit first eliminates the need for ice in our slushies, which means nothing can dilute the flavor.

*Use the prepared lemonade that you can buy in the refrigerated section at the store and not a lemonade concentrate. Concentrates will have lots of extra sugar that we don't want in our drink.
