Watermelon Basil Wine Slushie


By Alysha Melnyk

Wine slushies will always “scream” summer for me. I’ve had them at a handful of wineries, but at times I feel the “fruit base” is actually a lot of artificial flavors and colors but not real fruit. This combination is a great, natural way to enjoy a refreshing and fruity happy hour drink but without any questionable additives.

This is also a great way to use watermelon that you may have sliced/have on hand but just haven’t worked through yet. If you pop the watermelon in the freezer around lunch time, it’ll be frozen and ready for your happy hour needs. This is my new favorite “beverage of choice” for the summer. Cheers and enjoy!


  1. Add your frozen watermelon, wine and basil to a blender.
  2. Mix, and enjoy immediately.
  3. Cheers!
