As a resident of Georgia’s Coastal Plain, it’s already absolutely sweltering outside and it’s a lot to handle. In fact, it’s hard to truly enjoy a glass of Merlot when it’s 87 percent humidity. And obviously, we’re not going to stop drinking just because it feels like an inferno outside the front door.
Thus, wine slushies were born.
It’s simple and delicious. Wine, ice and even some fruit if you’re feeling adventurous. These adult slushies are just what the doctor ordered for this growing heat. Here are some of our favorites.
