Cocktail Hour // Chardonnay Slushie

Chardonnay-Slushies-Cocktail-Hour-1

Last week I finally had my first glass (okay, 3 or 4 sips) of wine since becoming pregnant last summer and it was every bit as delicious as I thought it would be!  In an effort to keep things simple these days, and incorporate one of my favorite ingredients–wine!– I present to you the Chardonnay Slushie.  It’s refreshing, takes a minimal amount of ingredients, and is super fun to serve at an al fresco backyard shindig– especially if you use paper umbrellas!  Oh, and best of all it’s super tasty!  Here’s what you’ll need:

    Yum! Congratulations on your little gal! There is something so precious about those first few weeks together as a family and I am glad to hear you are already out and about. I think that fresh air is so healthy for everyone….even the “fresh” LA air.
