Homemade Wine Slush Mix
Wine slush mix is a fun - but expensive - gifty thing sold at trade shows... but it's affordable and easy to make at home - here's how!
Servings 1 Packet - Good for 1 bottle of wine.
- 1 2/3 - 1 3/4 Cups Granulated Sugar (Less for if using a sweeter wine, more for a dry wine)
- 1 1/2 tsp Citric Acid
- 1/4 tsp Matcha (Green Tea) Powder Optional
Measure all ingredients into a food processor. Run the food processor for a minute or two, to finely process the sugar and evenly distribute the ingredients.
Pour powdered mix into a baggie or airtight container until ready to use.
To Make Wine Slush:
Pour 1 batch of mix into a 1 gallon freezer bag (or large bowl). Add 1 750 ml bottle of wine, and 3 cups of water. Stir/shake well. Freeze for about 3 hours before serving in glasses of your choice.(I like to freeze the mixture for a bit longer, stirring/shaking every 30 minutes or so, to produce a finer grained sorbet style dessert, pictured.)
As A Gift Idea
Package 1 batch of mix into a clear craft/goodie baggie, push most of the air out, and tie with a twist tie. Add a ribbon bow. Print the above directions (“To make wine slush”) onto a pretty card and attach to the baggie or ribbon.
