Cucumber Mint Wine Slushies ~ Rest easy Cucumber Mint Wine Slushies are here. I have been thinking about wine slushies since April when I had one, ok maybe a few, at The Austin Food & Wine Festival. I mean, what’s not to love? A slushie with wine! The one I had at the festival was pink and fruity so I decided to make a cool and minty one. Why? 1.) Because it’s back to school! And I want to help celebrate all of the moms, dads, grandparents and caregivers (it takes a village)! Getting those kids dressed and ready, checking homework, extra laundry, buying all of those school supplies ($!), packing lunches, making snacks, organizing book bags –– it’s work. 2.) Because it’s hot out and an icy cool beverage can sure help relieve some of that. AND 3.) Because wine + slushie = good. Cheers!
