Peach Wine Slushies

You know those days when you just need to unwind? Things aren’t going right at work, it was a long day of paperwork, the sun didn’t come out, or bad news of any sort pops up? You need a cocktail. But sometimes even making a cocktail seems like too much work. On days like those, I make my very favorite Peach Wine Slushies. You can already have them whipped up ready to go in your freezer when that bad day comes at ya.

Honestly, with these peach wine slushies, it’s half drink…and half dessert…100% a favorite. One of my special treats for the late summer months (when peaches are in season.)

I was completely enthralled by the Wente Facebook video of 5th generation winemaker Karl Wente explaining his two biggest passions in life: wine and music. From American Idol to the wine-making process, Karl explained his #LoveOfTheJourney and inspired me to share mine

Skinny Raspberry Moscow Mule

Calling all raspberry lovers! Looking for a fun new cocktail to whip up? Well, I got ya covered. Serve up these Skinny Raspberry Moscow Mules to your guest this labor day weekend. It will be a fan favorite.

How did the name “Moscow” become associated with this drink? Great question and I have the answer. It’s because folks associate vodka with Russia.
A typical Moscow Mule has Vodka, ginger beer, lime & ice as the classic ingredients. I have tweaked the classic recipe to include some fun add-ins: Raspberries & Mint.

I have been searching & searching for some copper mugs – because a Moscow Mule is never complete without them. I came across Mule Mugs and they had exactly what I was looking for. They even have mini copper mug shot glasses. How Cute!

A popular & delish ginger brew is Barret’s. Did you know there is no alcohol in most ginger beer? News to me.
