Once you make these peach white wine slushies you’re going to wonder where this recipe has been all of your life. It’s so easy and delicious it’s bound to become a favorite among your friends.
Though it is peak peach season, I used a bag of frozen peaches because it made getting these peach white wine slushies served up that much easier.
Whether you have an abundance of fresh peaches or a random bag of frozen peaches in the freezer, these slushies come together in minutes.
How to make a wine slushie
How to freeze peaches
Pit, peel, and slice fresh ripe peaches. Place the peaches in a single layer on a baking sheet. Use a half baking sheet that’s small enough to fit into your freezer.
Freeze the peaches for at least 4 hours but best overnight.
Once frozen, if not using right away, place the peaches into a freezer-safe bag or container with a lid. This will help keep the peaches tasting fresh.
Tips for this recipe
Freeze your glasses. These slushies start to melt as soon as they hit a room temperature glass. Make yours last longer by using glasses that have been in the freezer for at least an hour before serving.
Use frozen fruit. Using frozen fruit means you can skip the ice and not water down your cocktail.
Use a high powered blender. If possible. This not only saves you time but you’ll get a smoother final product. But if you’re still rocking with your blender from college, it’s still going to work. Just grab a spatula and scrape down the sides as needed. You might also find that you need a tiny bit more liquid to smooth it out.
Choose your finish. Blend the fruit and wine just until combined for a spoonable, soft sorbet consistency. Blend longer for a sippable slushie like these.
Are fruit and wine slushies healthy?
I don’t know that I’d call a wine slushie healthy. I mean there are some potential health benefits of white wine. This recipe uses fruit as a base so that means you get fiber, a little vitamin C, sweetness, and no added sugar. So, let’s call it a treat with benefits.
At the end of the day though, it’s a cocktail. Drink Responsibly. That means drinking alcohol in moderation which is defined as one drink per day for women and two for men. And no. You can’t save them up for the weekend. Sorry. It doesn’t work that way. 🙂Make these 5-minute Peach White Wine Slushies for a fun summer drink!
Best fruit to use
You can use many different fruits for wine slushies. Try raspberries, mango, or pineapple with white wine. Or, you know how you have a half a bag of this and half a bag of that? Combine the two! Peach strawberry would be a delicious combination with white wine.
Best wine for a slushie
I used Sauvignon Blanc for this one. To be honest, I didn’t do a lot of research. I just used what was in the fridge. But it worked. Go a bit sweeter with a Pinot Grigio or the much sweeter Moscato for a sparkling effect.
If you’re making a slushie with blueberries you might try a fruity red wine like a Tempranillo or Syrah.
There are only two steps for making these peach white wine slushies. Add the ingredients to the blender. Blend and pour!

Tips for making the best wine slushie:
