Truth be told, I may be the only female (older) millennial who doesn’t drink rose. As much as I want too, it just gives me the worst headaches, and honestly I don’t think it taste great. However, I am still a millennial and don’t want to give up on the frose fad completely, so today I bring you nectarine, wine slushie popsicles! And I’ll try to prove they are even better than frose.
So a side note on older millennials, (those of us born between between 1981/82 and 1988 (and I have to admit, I barely make the cut) think and act differently than the the younger set of our defined generation. The difference is likely based on two events, the financial crisis and smartphones taking over our lives. There are lots of articles on this topic, but my point in saying all this in the first place was to say, “don’t associate us (older millennials) with the negatives of the our younger counterparts.”
And now back to the recipe…the best thing about this recipe (if you can even call it that) is that there are only two ingredients, nectarines and wine (well and then more wine). Having previously been a red-only wine drinker, I am just starting to foray into whites. So far, the only ones I really like are Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier. I think either would work well with nectarines.
Nectarine Wine Slushie Popsicles
because frose doesn't deserve all the fun!
- 2 nectarines skin removed
- 1 cup Sauvignion Blanc or your favorite white
Cut the nectarines into chunks and remove the skin.
Add the nectarines and the cup of wine to a blender. Blend until incorporated.
Pour the mixture into popsicle molds.
Place in the freezer overnight
De-mold and serve as is or dunked into a glass of wine. (I suggest this route)
This recipe is great, because its really all about fruit and wine!
- nectarines: sub any fruit!
- wine: any white wine rose will work
