Strawberry Riesling Slushies
I’ve been wanting to make this slushy for what seems like FOREVER. I bought all of the ingredients and made several plans to make this drink for various friends and each plan fell through. I’m not really a Riesling drinker. Riesling tends to be a little sweet for me. Plus, I don’t want anyone else to think I’m a Riesling drinker, so I needed to get this bottle the heck out of my fridge. Or (the more likely story) I was ready for a slushy drink to go with our warm weather! So, I set out to make this drink last night and wouldn’t you know it? The temperature dropped 30 degrees and it started raining. Hmph. Then, our blender broke. Am I not supposed to have this drink or what?
Also, I realize my photo isn’t the best – hello rain??? Plus taking a photo of a slushy isn’t really going to give you an indication of anything other than color. To liven things up, I thought I’d do a little shout out to the University of Colorado Buffaloes! Go Buffs!
16 oz bag of whole frozen strawberries
1 bottle [750ml] dry Riesling
Juice from 1 fresh lime

Enjoy on a warm day!
