That looks so prettty. Now being pretty much a non drinker, this would be something I would trry and forget it had alcohol in it. It looks refreshing!

You could always leave the wine out even if you wanted and maybe use a little more soda or some kind of light juice.

My sister loves her wines. This sounds more like something I’d enjoy- a fruit spritzer.

Yes, this will be sweeter than wine and enjoyed by most everyone on a hot day

16 Robyn Wright July 28, 2015 at 12:43 pm

Wine slushy coming in a few days here. Having another oral surgery today and I’m sure the wine and the cold will feel good in a couple of days!
