If you haven’t noticed, I’m over-the-moon excited about our lake cottage. I’ve been anxious to return all week and can’t stop thinking about floating on the lake, finding a boat and making s’mores with the girls. It’s so peaceful, I can’t help but feel that with every weekend, a vacation lies ahead of us. And you know with vacations sometimes comes a little day drinking. I made these Champagne Slushies to enjoy a little day drinking without risk of over consuming while getting a healthy dose of fruit in as well.
My mom was the queen of light alcoholic drinks – especially frozen. We always joked about how tipsy she would get from half of a boat drink, which is just one of the many things I loved about her. She didn’t need to have an abundance to have a good time. Inspired by her and my friend Christina, I mixed up some champagne slushies for easy weekend sips at the lake. You can mix up a batch of your own in just 2 minutes, with only 2 ingredients. It’s kind of like a boozie smoothie, just in time for the weekend.
Since it’s this boozie smoothie consists of champagne and fruit, I also think it’s perfectly acceptable to enjoy at brunch.
- 3 c frozen strawberries
- 3 c chilled champagne or Prosecco
- Blend strawberries until smooth.
- Blend in chilled champagne and serve immediately.
Have a beautiful weekend friends, cheers!
