Tired of rosé? We don’t fully empathize since we’re all for the pink drink, but if you’re on the hunt for alternative summer-friendly beverages, we have two words for you: wine slushies. This fun and fresh way to imbibe is doubly handy as it can easily pass for a boozy dessert at your next get-together. Read on for some of our favorite wine-infused frozen treats to enjoy this season (or year-round; we don’t judge).

Strawberry Peach Wine Slushies

With two fruits in this slushy, it’s essentially a smoothie. Blogger Sugar and Soul Co. has the right idea with this simple and sweet recipe, which only has four ingredients (five if you include ice) and is a great way to use up that cheap bottle of white that’s been sitting in your fridge.

Pineapple White Wine Slushies

This recipe is the perfect tropical-inspired treat to indulge in if you can’t actually make it to the tropics this summer. The white wine-based drink is made by freezing real pineapple and simply adding a splash—okay, a bottle—of vino, making it ideal for any rookie bartenders looking to show off this summer.

Peach Sangria Granita

Look at that color! This on-trend—ahem, Ultra Violet—beverage actually incorporates red wine instead of white or pink for a twist on summer classics. The peach flavor actually comes courtesy of peach schnapps for an extra boozy kick.

Ruffino Froseccó Frutta

We have Italian wine company Ruffino to thank for this super easy and delicious recipe. The blackberry and peach-infused drink is the perfect addition to your at-home happy hour. Mix 25 oz. prosecco, 12 on. blackberry simple syrup (literally just fresh blackberries and simple syrup), 4 oz. peach simple syrup, and 8 oz. lemon juice into a frozen drink machine, and process until frozen.

Not in possession of a frozen drink machine? Freeze the prosecco and add a few ice cubes to achieve an icy consistency.
