It’s summer, summer, summer! Finally, what we’ve all been waiting for – hot weather, beach days, chilly nights around a fire. And lots of refreshing treats like these Cantaloupe Wine Slushies – you’ll fall head over heels with them: fresh, chilled, and boozy!
Nothing cools m down during the summer more than a frozen beverage, whether it’s virgin or packs with my favorite boozy libation. Recently, I discovered the joy of what a wine slushie is and I haven’t looked back. These Cantaloupe Wine Slushies are life changing, I assure you. Three ingredients plus some fresh mint and you’ve got a summer deck party ready to happen!
If you’re like me, you always have some sort of frozen fruit in the freezer and that makes it 100 times easier and faster to make this recipe. This three-ingredient recipe uses my husband’s favorite fruit: cantaloupe. Whenever it’s on sale and extra ripe, I peel and remove the seeds from a couple of melons and freeze it for future slushy making. I hope you give these – or any of the ones listed below – a try this season. Your hot and bothered body will surely thank you!
