Wine in slushy form? Yes please. While brainstorming for cocktail ideas for this upcoming month, Maggie found the idea for a red wine slushy, and we knew we had to try it out. We decided to put an LMP twist on it… instead of red wine, we used rosé!
Get ready for the prettiest summer cocktail you’ve ever seen, and that you will be dying to try!
Here’s what you need:
-fresh lemon, zested
Here’s what to do:
1) Take one of your fresh lemons and zest. Combine with sugar on a plate and mix until zest is evenly distributed. Use lemon wedge to wet the rim of your glasses, and place rim in sugar/ lemon zest mixture to line each rim.
2) Combine 1 cup ice, 1 oz. orange juice, 1.5 oz vodka, 5 oz. rosé, a handful of blackberries and a tbsp of sugar to a blender. Blend until you reach a slushy consistency.
3) Pour mixture into each glass, careful not to get sugared rim wet. Garnish with fresh blackberry and sprig of mint.
Until next week… Cheers!
