Cocktail trends come and go. Some classics such as piña coladas, margaritas and strawberry daiquiris are always on the menu. Santa Margherita is mixing things up this season. When it comes to frozen drinks you’ll typically find tequila, rum and flavored vodka in the recipe. Swap the heavy liquor for a light and bubbly wine like Santa Margherita’s Prosecco Superiore, adding a little sparkle to your drink!

Beat the heat with a cool spiked strawberry slushie. The frozen drink trend doesn’t stop there, it’s all about the details. Add popsicles and flavored ice cubes to the mix. Santa Margherita takes it a step further and transforms the crisp and pleasantly fruity wine into iced fruit cubes and yes, adult-friendly “winesicles.”

SPIKED STRAWBERRY SLUSHIE:

Santa Margherita Prosecco Superiore
3 cups of strawberries
1/4 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 spring of fresh mint
Ice cubes
1 Tablespoon of sugar

Stir lemon juice and ½ Santa Margherita Prosecco Superiore together, set aside. Combine ice cubes, mint, sugar and strawberries in blender, blend on high until smooth. Pour in lemon and Santa Margherita Prosecco Superiore mixture and blend on medium until smooth. Distribute mixture and top each glass with remaining Prosecco. Garnish with strawberry.

WINESICLES:

Santa Margherita Prosecco Superiore
Edible flowers
Popsicle mold

Place 3-5 edible flowers in each popsicle mold and fill it with Santa Margherita Prosecco Superiore. Freeze for 4-6 hours, or until completely solid. Once frozen, remove mold and garnish popsicle sticks with ribbon

FESTIVE FRUIT CUBES:

Santa Margherita Prosecco Superiore
Assorted sliced fruit

Fill ice cube trays with sliced fruit. Carefully pour Santa Margherita Prosecco Superiore over the fruit to fill tray. Freeze for 4-6 hours and serve in a glass with chilled Santa Margherita Prosecco Superiore
