This alcoholic slushy combines plums with rosé wine for a light and refreshing cocktail. The weather has been quite warm in California and while we are getting into fall the higher temperatures have me reaching for a cooling drink like this.
Our resident bartender at our last “Create dinner” party, Kimberly, created this rosé recipe and it was such a hit I just had to share it! Adding chilled rosé to the blender ensures that the ice it’s blended with won’t melt as fast.
1 (750 milliliter) bottle rosé
2 medium plums, peeled and sliced
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 cup blackberries, for garnish
Freeze rosé for an hour or two. If freezing overnight, be sure to put the bottle in a plastic bag.
Add the rosé, plums, honey and lemon juice to a blender along with 3 cups of ice. Blend until the mixture is smooth.
Serve in glasses garnished with blackberries.
