Champagne Slushi

Why should kids have all the fun with slushis? Well, they don’t get to anymore! I came up with this recipe this past December before New Years Eve. We were going to our neighbors party and I just didn’t want to show up with the predictable bottle of champagne, hence Champagne Slushis. They were a huge hit! They’re flavorful & fun to drink! I have tried this with both Champagne & Prosecco (an Italian sparkling wine) and it’s great with both. Best of all, it’s easy to make. You can even make them the night before your party (one less thing to worry about).

I’m going to be trying many other flavor variations & I’m sure they’ll be just as tasty. If you want a more tart slushi just leave out the strawberries. It’s incredibly lemony (almost like a lemon head slushi LOL) Cheers to you!

Baci!

      Thanks Suzanne! I think that’s a great idea. It’s the perfect season for the slushi! I like to use Prosecco in mine (bc it’s Italian -wink wink- & it’s also sweeter to me than regular champagne) & if you happen to have any leftover you can just pop it back into the freezer! Cheers!
