Frozen sangria slush with berries

  • Pin It
I just whipped up the ultimate grownup beverage for the 4th of July: frozen sangria. All the delicious fruitiness of your favorite sangria, all the frosty summertime buzz of a frozen margarita. You won't believe how easy it is. And those antioxidants (from the blueberries)! That vitamin C (the strawberries)! Oh yes, this one is a keeper. I bet it would make a superb sorbet too...but that's tomorrow's project....

Frozen sangria with berries
  • 2 cups frozen strawberries, hulled (if you want to use fresh strawberries, clean and hull them, then stick them in the freezer in a plastic container for an hour)
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 peach, cut into chunks
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 3 cups fruity white wine (I used a lovely Vouvray)
  • 1/4 cup triple sec
Put all ingredients in a blender and push the button. Blend until smooth. Serve immediately.

I love all the fresh and natural ingredients in this mix. So many drinks are chock full of additives and other unnatural junk...this looks delightful!

You had me at sangria. :)

Update: I put the leftovers in the freezer overnight, then broke it up this morning with a fork. It's sangria granita. To die for.

You guys are so great! Thanks for all the compliments and "likes" and support! This post is getting lots and lots of traffic and drove me to my highest-ever traffic day yesterday (pageviews AND visits)!

One note I wanted to make: Some people may prefer a sweeter slush. I definitely like things less sweet, but if you want it sweeter, add some sugar, simple syrup, or agave.
