Servings 5 Servings
- 1 C (226g) Rose Wine plus up to 2/3 C (141g) more for blending after frozen, I like Bonterra,
- 1 C (155g) Strawberries fresh
- 1.5 oz (42g) Simple Syrup or 4 Tbs Honey - adjust to taste
- 2 oz (57g) Aperol , Lillet Blanc or Orange Liquor like Grand Mariner
- 1/2 Lemon juiced
- 1/2 C (70g) Ice crushed
Into the pitcher of a high speed blender (I use VitaMix), add the strawberries, rose, simple or honey, Aperol (or Lillet Blanc or Orange Liquor), lemon juice and ice. Blend until liquified.
Place pitcher in the freezer and freeze for 6-8 hours.
Scrape the icy mixture from around the blender blades and add up to 5 oz more of liquid Rose to thin and to help get the blender blades moving. Blend, pulsing if needed and adding more Rose' as needed to loosen the mixture.
Share right away or scrape mixture into a storage container and freeze until ready to share.
Strawberry wine slushies can be made up to one week in advance.
*To make simple syrup: Pour 1/2 C (120g) sugar and 1/2 C (116g) water in a two-quart saucepan. Swirl the pan to mix the sugar and water. Bring mixture to a boil until all the sugar is dissolved. Pour into a lidded heat proof container for storage in the refrigerator until ready to use.
