Strawberry Sparkling Wine Slushie

 Hello friends!  How about a fun fruity drink to kick off the week?  Ok, save the recipe for your Friday night shenanigans then!  This is a springy strawberry flavour bursting one.

I’m always game to try new things…especially new food and drinks…and then I invite friends over to try out my new concoctions because what are friends for, right?  It’s a tough job taste testing.  They tell you the truth – the good and the bad – and I love that.  So recently I invited one of my best girlfriends and her family over for a Saturday night dinner, and on the drink menu was this Strawberry Fresita-rita that the hubby and I came up with.

Fresita what?  Fresita-rita!  A margarita style drink but with a strawberry infused sparkling wine added to it.  Yes.  Strawberry sparkling wine.  Yum.  Fresita is an all natural Chilean Sparkling wine infused with strawberries, which is lovely on it’s own, but added to crushed ice, pureed fresh strawberries and a few other fun additions, you get the Strawberry Fresita-rita.  And it’s delish!

Strawberry Sparkling Wine Slushie

Fun, fruity and so refreshing!  Just picture yourself on a sunny deck in the summer with friends and a Strawberry Fresita-rita in your hands?  Ahhhhhh

    Favourite summer drink? Whatever you’re making!
    I love a cold crisp beer. And that’s very strange for me to say given how I did not like beer for majority of my life. But in terms of cocktails, definitely something with a lemony orange twist in it. With lots of ice!
