Frozen Watermelon Rosé Sangria Slushies + Video
Could there be a more fun drink than these Frozen Watermelon Rosé Sangria Slushies?!
I don’t know about you guys, but I grew up on watermelon slushies…aka watermelon, lemonade, and ice mixed together in the blender. My brothers and I would make them all summer long and eat them with spoons, we loved them. Seeing as Memorial Day is this Monday, I thought these fun and very summery drinks were a must share.
Summer drinks + Memorial Day just go hand in hand, right? Right.

And I know, it’s not technically summer for another three weeks, but to me Memorial Day is the start of all thing summertime. I’ve said this many times before, but the end of the school year just means summertime, and even though I’ve been out of school for a few year now, I still have the same feelings every time the end of May rolls around.
Summer, Summer, Summer!
AND, we had such a beautiful and semi summery day this past Wednesday that I have high hopes that warmer days are ahead. Fingers crossed. <– say a prayer guys, NO MORE snow needed over here….
Anyway, how was everyone’s week? Mine was so busy, but yet seemed to go so slow. I remember on Tuesday feeling like it was Thursday, so I’m pretty pumped that the weekend is finally here, and it’s a long one too!! Whoop, Whoop!
Kai and I spent most of the week filming new recipe videos, and then I ran around trying to multi-task, which I have decided I am no good at. Crazy week, but a good one, and I LOVE ending a week feeling like a lot was accomplished. It was definitely one of those weeks! Whoop. Whoop. Round two.
I’m hoping you guys also had a great week…and plan to have an even better weekend…which obviously needs to start with these frozen watermelon rosé sangria slushies.
This fun big batch cocktail is the perfect drink to make all summer long. It’s one of those drinks that everyone can love, plus it’s also the easiest thing to make. All you need is a blender and some good rosé and you are in business.
The ingredient list goes as follows.
…your favorite bottle of Rosé <–what’s you favorite brand? I used Charles & Charles Rosé.
…a generous splash of tequila or vodka <– I like to use tequila. You could also use an orange liquor, which I think would be delish too!
…a little lime juice <–for a nice hit if citrus.
…frozen watermelon chunks <–I froze mine the night before, then the chunks act as ice to make the sangria a frozen cocktail.
…frozen raspberries <– any frozen berry will work, but I like raspberries for their tart flavor and red color.
…a little honey <–for sweetness, use as little or a much as you like, just be sure to taste as you add.
…fruits and edible flowers <–for a pretty finish.
Honestly though, how good do these sound? And they’re perfect for a crowd, I know I already said this, but they’re just so easy. Add everything to a blender and you’re done. Love that.
Friday Question: what are you guys up for this three-day weekend? Totally not a clue what’s happening over here, but half the crew is headed to Baja California, Mexico and half of me is pretty jealous. The other half is pretty excited to be at home this weekend with nothing to do…except make sangria slushies and hopefully sit outside in the sun, which is my ideal weekend day.
Are any of you guys hosting a Memorial Day party? Attending one? Laying low? What’s up? If you’re in need of Memorial Day recipe ideas be sure to check back here on Sunday, I’m putting up my list of summer BBQ foods. In the meantime, here is last year’s list…so many recipes and so many new ones to add! YUM.
No matter what your plans are this weekend, just make sure they include these sangria slushies.
