Frozen Peach Wine Slushies Recipe
Summertime is here. It’s hot, you’re tired, and all you really want is an ice-cold frozen drink or one of your favorite summer cocktails. A glass of bubbly prosecco or champagne sounds good, but hey! It’s summer and seasonal fresh fruit fills the air with its sweet, delicious aroma.
Deciding to change things up, today we’re making this blended frozen wine slushie. Perfect for girls nights, backyard parties, or any random hot summer day, if you love peaches (or any other fruit) and wine, then you’re going to really love these slushies.
Ingredients & Frequently Asked Questions
- Frozen peaches
That is literally it, my friends. I mean, this may be the most simple recipe on the blog, to date. You’re essentially making a wine smoothie with just two ingredients. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m pretty good at making smoothies with way more than two ingredients, so this is a piece of cake.
If you prefer sweeter cocktails, try adding a few tablespoons of simple syrup or honey to sweeten it up a bit.
What wine should I use?
My first rule of thumb when picking out a wine to use in any kind of mixed drink or cocktail is to choose something that I know I like. In other words, look to use your favorite wine (reasonably priced, of course).
For these particular wine slushies, however, I recommend a white that is neither too dry nor too sweet. Keep in mind, however, that this is just my personal preference. I doubt that there is a wrong white wine to use in this recipe…except for maybe chardonnay. Chardonnay would probably be my last choice.
As for me, I used a light and somewhat fruity Pinot Grigio. The second choice would have been Sauvignon Blanc. And, of course, for those days when I really want something a little sweeter, a sweet Riesling or Moscato would be perfect.
- Less sweet- Pinot Grigio or Cabernet Sauvignon
- More Sweet- Riesling or Moscato
- Yes, you could even try it with a smooth rosé
Can I make this kid-friendly?
I know, what about the kiddos? As a mom, I totally get it. You spend all this time (aka no time) making this delicious grown-up summertime drink for you and all of your friends (or maybe just for you)…and then your kid asks, where’s mine, mom?
Ugh, the kids.
If you’re like me (a push-over mom) then you will probably have to offer your beautiful little life-sucking humans something or accept that your frozen wine slushie will be served with a side of whining.
Thankfully, THIS IS EASY!
Simply replace the wine with either apple juice or white grape juice. Kids love ’em.
Can I use any frozen fruit?
Feel free to change up which fruit or wine you use. Strawberries, mango, pineapple, watermelon, blueberries, blackberry, raspberries, or a mix (strawberry peach or simple strawberry are my other favorites)! You could also use red wine or rosé wine in place of white wine in place of the white wine.
How to Make Wine Slushies
Depending on how much time you have, or how much time you want to put into making your wine slushies, will determine how simple or complex you want to make your recipe (not that it’s humanly possible to make this complex…)
First things first, you need some frozen peaches. How you obtain these frozen peaches is entirely up to you. Will you buy pre-frozen peaches? or slice and freeze your own? It really doesn’t matter, just get some peaches.
Next, pick your wine. Yep, you’re going to want a bottle.
- Optional! Freeze half the bottle of wine in an ice cube tray overnight…But, let’s be honest, who remembers to do this? Or, who freezes half a bottle and saves the rest of the bottle for the next day?
Grab your very best blender. Blend the frozen peaches and wine (or wine cubes) in a blender until slushed. Careful! Don’t over-process.
Want it slushier? Transfer the blended wine slushy to a clean loaf pan and freeze. BUT REMEMBER! You’ll need to mix it every 20 minutes or so until the desired slushiness is reached. This, my friends, is called a frosé.

Frozen Peach Wine Slushies Recipe
- 1 bottle chilled white wine ((I used a fruity Pinot Grigio))
- 6 cups frozen peaches (plus more if needed)
- sliced peaches (to garnish)
- Add wine and frozen peaches to the bowl of a large high-speed blender. Gradually work up the blender speed to high and blend until peaches and wine are fully pureed.
- If you prefer a thicker slushie, you may either add additional frozen peaches and blend until desired thickness is reached, OR, place blender in the freezer and allow the wine slushie to freeze, stirring every 20 minutes or so, until desired consistency is reached.
