Summer is officially here, and it’s starting to get hot here in Virginia. Usually that means the start of cocktail season at our house, but now that I’m 30 my body suddenly won’t tolerate the endless stream of sugary, boozy beverages that I want to put into it. Acid reflux and hangovers – they’re no joke, you guys.
So, ya know, I’ve made wine slushie popsicles instead. Totally different. Won’t at all negatively impact my body. Because it’s portion controlled. Or something? [shifty eyes]
Mostly, I’m counting on Dan to eat most of these pops. Popsicles don’t last long in our house, as he tends to eat about 20 of them at a time. For this post, he has demanded a “modeling fee” of “all the popsicles”.
Look at that face! That’s pure happiness, right there.
And speaking of happiness, we should talk about these wine slushie popsicles. Wine slushies have been all the rage lately. Everyone loves wine, and wine slushies are sweet, boozy, icy goodness. In frozen popsicle form, they’re even more deliciously refreshing, especially on a hot summer day.
And, these wine slushie pops are unbelievably easy to throw together. The next time you’re throwing a party and need an awesome dessert on short notice, just throw a bottle of sweet wine into a blender with a bunch of frozen fruit, pour the mixture into popsicle molds, freeze…and voila! Instant fan favorite.
