There is no better way to handle the heat we are experiencing here in Nairobi, than with a refreshing, delicious minty frozen mixed berry with natural sweet red wine slushie with a little stingy lemony vibe. For the longest time I’ve been debating if my version of a slushie would need ice cubes of just settle with frozen fruit instead. I finally settled with frozen fruit, since I couldn’t find my ice cube tray.
It’s funny how I love minty alcoholic drinks like mojitos and slushies but not minty tea. Are you guys a fun of minty tea?? I just feel like the minty version in tea is a little bit concentrated and I just couldn’t deal with it.
Slushies are basically a flavored frozen drink perfect for keeping you cool on a hot summer day.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Prep time: 5 mins
Serves: 2 -3 pax
- 1 cup of mixed blueberries & raspberries
- 2 cups of strawberries
- 1 -1/2 cups of four cousins – sweet red wine

- 1 teaspoon of lemon zest – Garnish > OPTIONAL
- 6 to 8 mint leaves
- Blender – Black decker

Step 1: Into your blender, near the blade, add all your liquids, then next goes in your frozen fruits and mint leaves. Close and pulse until everything is well combined.
Step 2: Serve into your jar /glasses. Add your garnish, cling your glasses and enjoy.
