Fruity wine slushies will make your lazy summer days better

As a kid, I loved the homemade fruit slushies my mom would make during the warmer months. Now that I'm an adult, I decided to travel back to this childhood recipe and transform it into something more grown up.

moscato fruit slushies

Using pink moscato wine for this recipe adds sweetness to the already sweet fruit without overpowering it. This type of wine also isn't bitter, making it great for this cocktail.

I chose to use frozen peaches and frozen mango, but almost anything could work here. Think pineapple, oranges, strawberries or even sweet melon. I also like to buy extra fruit when it is on sale and cut it up myself and then freeze it rather than spend lots of money on bags of frozen fruit, but store-bought frozen fruit is just as good should you have that on hand.
