Spring is in full swing and summer is just around the corner, so why not take a break from the hot, hot sun and cool down with a wine slushie?
Other frozen drinks, such as piña coladas, daiquiris and mudslides, are often scarily high in calories and from artificial mixers, according to Gizmodo.
But to make these frozen fruity concoctions, all you need is a blender, some ice, wine, fruit and good taste. You can also freeze and defrost these babies in batches.
As the song goes, it's "summertime and the living's easy." With wine slushies, it truly is. Below are eight wine slushie recipes to enjoy all summer long — and maybe into winter.
