Frozen Wine Cocktails Slushies for end of the summer parties

I decided to take the fun, fruity flavors of Arbor Mist and give you some ideas on serving up my Frozen Wine Cocktail Slushies. They’re perfect for when you want something to cool down with, and you want to go “lite” with your drinking.

Just take Arbor Mist, freeze it in ice cube trays, blend it with regular ice cubes for a “grown up slushy.” This frozen blender drink has all the flavor, a bit less calories, and more fun than drinking a glass of wine. Since you can’t drink these too quickly without getting the dreaded brain freeze, it may prevent you from overindulging.

I also added some blueberries and raspberries to the layers of these Arbor Mist frozen wine cocktails to inspire you for upcoming Labor Day parties when you may want some red, white and blue cocktails.

The fun thing about these Frozen Wine Cocktail Slushies is that you can prepare the Arbor Mist ice cubes ahead of time along with your garnishes. Then during the party, just get the frozen blender drinks going at the bar (or in the kitchen) and make these “to order.” An alternative is to make up a tray and have them ready in the freezer to present for your guests at intervals during the party.

The layered Frozen Wine Cocktail Slushies can be eaten like ice cream parfaits. Or you can wait until they melt a bit and sip them through a straw. Pair them with Healthy Baked Plantain Chips or your favorite goodies from the grill.

Skinny Frozen Wine Cocktails – a new twist on the wine spritzer

If you’re like me, I’m always trying to find ways to still enjoy myself while incorporating “better for you” ingredients in my party plans. That’s why when I entertain, I make sure to offer up healthier side dishes like salads and roasted on the grill vegetables.

It’s the same with drinks. One way I can indulge safely in a lower calorie way is to make a Skinny Frozen Wine Cocktail. It’s a fun version of a wine spritzer.

Just freeze some wine in an ice ball maker mold and then plunk it in a margarita glass of flavored seltzer water along with a garnish of some berries and a sprig of something from your herb garden.

The wine ball slowly melts into the seltzer. It helps you avoid the calories and boozy affects of a full glass of wine. And it’s elegant, refreshing, and delish!

I like to freeze up a batch of wine balls to keep on hand for guests or a party. Keep the frozen wine balls in a Ziplock freezer bag until it’s time to make up a batch of Skinny Frozen Wine Cocktails!
