Strawberry Red Wine Slushies

I love entertaining. Whether it's an elegant dinner party, holiday gatherings or even just a couple of good friends over for a meal, it all makes me happy. I love planning a menu I think they'll love, getting the table set in a way that's both pretty and still functional and coming up with a special cocktail. I'm definitely all about the cocktail.

Strawberry Red Wine Slushies
I must have inherited the entertaining gene from my parents because they used to throw a lot of dinner parties when I was growing up. And I remember my father taking drink orders and going off to make what everybody wanted. Very elegant but maybe not completely practical. I'm more of a house cocktail in a big pitcher sort of hostess.

For a small dinner, it's easy enough to just serve wine but I wanted to make something a little more special. Not to mention that the weather is seriously hot these days. But some frozen strawberries added a great flavor and tang to the wine and turned it into a wonderful treat.

It needed a little extra sweetness but I've been keeping a bottle of homemade sugar-free simple syrup using Sweet N Low in my fridge all summer. With this zero calorie sweetener, I could make the slushies as sweet as I wanted without adding any extra calories. Good thing, too, because these go down fast and easy. Cheers!
